GET YOUR KICKS ON THE 606
Beyond the lake, Chicagoans have a growing number of bike paths to choose from. Of these, none is more prominent than the sky-high 606 path, a creative reuse of the old Bloomingdale Trail. Stretching from Ashland Avenue to the western trailhead at Ridgeway, the path offers travelers of all conveyance a beautiful view of the west to near-west side (and a safe bike route for commuters). Existing parks connect with ones specially created within the trail -- so visitors can stop as they please to play, relax, and enjoy the views (especially on the bridge over Humboldt Avenue).
