May 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 May 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. A small section of the lakefront trail between Chicago Ave. and Ontario St. has been affected by recent 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 in the spring. Until then the area will be monitored and cleaned up as needed.

Reminder, please use caution and slow down in work zones.
