A cinder trail tour chock full of views over Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline.

Brian Krusell

Overview

Half of the loop uses the paved Chicago Lakefront Trail - North, while the eastern half is primarily on cinder trails. This loop incorporates one of the few "hills" in Chicago, which offers views of the Chicago skyline.
Features: Lake — Views
Dogs: Leashed

Description

This run starts at the parking area near Montrose Beach. Head north past the dog park, and then follow a wide carriage trail along the lake. At the turnaround point you switch over to the Chicago Lakefront Trail - North, which has an cinder trail option along the side.

The LFT is a paved path spanning a total of 18 miles along the western shores of Lake Michigan. If you're looking for a longer option, this is the trail to take!

Finish your outing by running past the new public track and up the "hill" in Montrose Park.
