Panther Training Walking/Hiking FitTrip: "The 606"
Sat, June 10, 2017, 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM CDT
GETTING TO "THE 606" TRAIL:
The 606 runs along the Bloomingdale Trail (1800N) for 2.7 miles between Ashland (1600W) and Ridgeway (3750W). Walking, cycling or taking public transportation is encouraged. There are 12 access points, approximately every quarter-mile, and a total of 17 access ramps, all of which are accessible to people with disabilities.
There is no dedicated parking facility for The 606, but there is metered and street parking in the neighborhoods surrounding the trail (some areas may require resident permits to park). If not arriving on bike or foot, we recommend using public transportation to visit the park and trail system.
Easiest transit access is via the CTA Blue Line – visitors will be closest to access points at either the Western or Damen stops. Another central hub with which visitors may be familiar (also at the Damen stop) is Wicker Park’s shopping, restaurant and club district at the Damen/Milwaukee/North intersection.
On the western end of the trail, visitors also can take the Blue Line to the Logan Square stop, which features a central plaza and the Illinois Centennial Monument, as well as boutique shops, restaurants and clubs. Then they can experience Chicago’s famed boulevard system by walking down Kedzie to the trail (approximately a mile south).
The 606 can also be accessed via Metra (commuter rail) at the Healy stop on the Milwaukee District North Line (also approximately a mile walk) or the Clybourn stop on the Union Pacific North and Northwest Lines (which is about two blocks away). Bicycle use is encouraged on the multi-use path.
