A formerly abandoned stretch of elevated railway track that runs through Logan Square, Humboldt Park, Wicker Park and Bucktown has found new life as the 606. Named after the first three digits in every Chicago zip code, the 2.7-mile path provides a quick way to travel east and west on the North Side, connecting several parks and public art installations. Prepare to dodge strollers, bicycles and residents out for a very slow jog on this popular throughway.

A beautifully landscaped oasis, the 606 makes for a beautiful run or ride (and a quick way to cut across the city minus traffic stops).


The 606 is great! I often go there to run with my dog. The 606 is great for walks, runs, biking, or just exploring. It's a great way to find a little escape from the city too.


Whether you're trying to get from one part of the city to the other or just looking for a reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city, the 606 is perfect just for that.

The long awaited 606 is a Chicago oasis. Run, walk, bike, walk the dog—you'll see everyone out on the 606 on nice weekend afternoons.

This is my favorite place to go for runs as well as non-food place to take people visiting from out of town. It's a lovely spot that promotes wellness and fosters community.

With so many great parks in Chicago, the 606 is a unique way to view the city. you're able to walk through the urban sprawl and enjoy the lesser visited areas of the city (plus you get to view the rooftops of some pretty amazing condos!)
