Walk the 606 in Chicago


New York has the High Line and now Chicago has the 606 – the longest elevated walking trail in the world. Opening on 6 June 2015, the 606 utilises the old Bloomingdale train line that has been silent for over a decade and now brings parklands to the neighbourhoods of Logan Square, Humboldt Park, Bucktown and Wicker Park.

With 37 bridges and 1400 trees from 200 plant species along the 2.7 mile-long trail, the 606 will bring together arts, history, design, trails for bikers, runners, and walkers, event spaces, alternative transportation avenues, and green, open space for locals and visitors alike.
