The 606

About this feature

The 606 trail and park network unites several of Chicago's neighborhoods, giving residents a dedicated place to bike, walk, jog and hang out above the bustle of the area. With the 2.7-mile elevated Bloomingdale Trail (reclaimed from an old railroad line) as its centerpiece, the system ties together Bucktown, Wicker Park, Logan Square and Humboldt Park.
