Northern Lakefront Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Hugging the shores of Lake Michigan, the northern section of Chicago’s Lakefront Trail is a gentle walk through the oaks and harbors of Lincoln Park: an elegant, storied greenspace and the Second City’s answer to Central Park in New York. Originally a 120-acre cemetery, its tombs were opened and relocated in the mid-nineteenth century—including smallpox victims and over 4,000 Confederate prisoners of war— and the space was named in honor of Abraham Lincoln shortly after his assassination. Today, the Lakefront Trail that skirts its fields and statues is one of the most popular routes for walkers, runners, and cyclists in the United States."
