Chicago South Side Ramble

Chicago South Side Ramble Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This ride reveals a south side of Chicago that is vast and persistently interesting. Visit four great Chicago south-side parks, follow the Lake Michigan coastline, and explore Pullman, a nineteenth-century planned neighborhood of Victorian row houses. The route also takes you through areas of heavy industry for which the south side is known. While exploring the wetlands of the Lake Calumet area, it’s hard to believe that you’re still in the city of Chicago.

This ride starts within Jackson Park, home to one of the most important events in Chicago history: the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893. Some of the features of this world-renowned event still exist within the park. South of the parking area where this ride begins is a lagoon surrounding an island containing a serene Japanese garden."
