The 606 and the Bloomingdale Trail, Chicago’s new rail-to-trail and park project, made national headlines when it opened up this summer, and in just a few short weeks established itself as one of Chicago’s most popular public spaces.
The overwhelming success of the trail leads to an immediate and obvious question: where can we put more trails?
Several great candidates already exist.

Helping make the Lakefront Trail safer and more convenient for everyone who uses it has been a priority of Active Trans for decades. As anyone who uses the trail knows, jumping on the trail for a run, a stroll or a bike ride too often means being confronted with heavy congestion and potential conflict with fellow trail users.

It’s now May and I think it’s 90% safe to say that spring is finally here. With the warmer weather comes increased traffic on the Lakefront Trail, especially with the abundance of scheduled 5Ks, 10Ks, and half-marathons.
Be prepared for your lakefront bike ride or jog by checking out the following list of weekend events. And for regular trail updates, visit our Lakefront Trail Conditions page or follow our Twitter feed (@ActiveTransLFT).

People walk, run and ride bikes on the Lakefront Trail year round, but with spring blooming, trail users should expect trail use to grow over the next several weeks.
Before you head out to the trail, you should know about some major lakefront construction projects that could affect your trip.
