DescriptionOnce an overgrown railroad track littered with urban debris, the 2.7 mile path known as the Bloomingdale Trail is Chicago's new elevated trail and park system. This is where the locals go for a quick run, bike with the family or a walk to grab your morning coffee. A couple blocks north of North Avenue, The 606 runs west from Ashland Avenue, near the Kennedy Expressway, to Ridgeway Avenue, just past the McCormick Tribune YMCA in Logan Square. (2.7 miles one way)

  • Great running trail, just make sure to go early in the morning or it becomes packed with people, bikes and skateboards during the day. ( by Cary Black on 2016-07-10 )
  • This is a great new trail in Chicago. Lots of water fountains, well maintained parks, and it's all above street level (no concerns about street crossings). There can be a lot of foot and bike traffic, and there is no shade, but it's one of Chicago's best places to run. ( by David Murphy on 2016-06-28 )
