Chicago’s Lakefront Trail is 18.5 miles of bicycle and pedestrian path along Lake Michigan stretching all the way from the south to north side of the city. The lakefront trail is full of amazing views, beaches and parks. It also connects you to the best attractions in the city and to Chicago’s diversified neighborhoods.
