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.

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.
