Hike the 606

Monday, May 20 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am CDT


Bloomingdale Trail (The 606)

Walsh Playground Park

1722 N Ashland Avenue

Chicago, IL

Research demonstrates that outdoor exercise, such as hiking, offers health and well-being benefits. Join us for a two-mile hike. We will do an out-and-back hike on the eastern 1 mile of The 606. This is a paved urban trail with a narrow rubber shoulder on which you can also walk. Please wear comfortable hiking or running shoes, bring a water bottle, and dress for the weather.

The Bloomingdale Trail, part of “The 606” park system, is a 3-mile, elevated rail trail on Chicago’s northwest side. Built on a former rail line, the trail sits 17 feet above four of the city’s neighborhoods.

Presented by: Kimberly Matthews, MA, LCPC; Megan McMahon, PhD

Hike will be canceled in the event of inclement weather.
