This trail was put together nicely, it reminds me of NYC’s High Line trail. It’s cool how cities turn abandoned places into accessible public parks & fitness areas. The trail was about 3 miles long and had some nice greenery, benches to sit down, bike...More

The 606 is a disused railway consisting of a central concrete walkway with cushioned side sections for runners. It’s lined by plant/shrubs and is a pleasant walk. It does get very busy with walkers, runners, roller bladers and cyclists. Pay attention to them as they...More

The 606 is perfect for a family stroll and safe for kids on wheels. It is very nice to go past the different neighborhoods.

Almost 18 feet above street level. We walked about 2 miles. It's an elevated park similar to New York's the High Line. Plenty of unique art installations along the way. Great way to spend the day. Try Mindy's Hot Chocolate

I stayed at a hotel in Wicker Park and was pleased to find the 606 trail entrance... did a quick out and back for about 5 miles... it’s well built and there are even water fountains along the trail.

If you are traveling to Chicago, get off the beaten tourist “path” and go to the 606. Get on at Damen and walk west to the end. I like to go at 5 or 6pm as the weather starts to cool down. Turn around at...More
