June events on the Lakefront Trail

The Active Transportation Alliance compiles a list of events happening each month along the Lakefront Trail. See what's going on in the month of June so you can better plan your walking, biking or running route. This month will be busy!

For regular updates about the Lakefront Trail, follow our Lakefront Trail Twitter page and the #chiLFT hashtag.

NOTE: For updates on the Lakefront Trail separation construction, visit the Chicago Park District’s page.

Construction is beginning on the current Lakefront Trail between Foster and Montrose. Durring this project, people biking and walking both will be diverted to the newly constructed path, which will eventually become the bike path. Click here for the detour map of the North side.

A small section of the Lakefront trail between Chicago Ave. and Ontario St. recently has experienced storm damage. The pedestrian portion of the trail in this area is open for both foot and bike traffic.  Repairs will be made when weather allows. Until then the area will be monitored and cleaned up as needed.

Please remember to use caution and slow down in work zones.
