City Hike: Chicago River & West Loop

NOTE: This hike will end in a different location than it starts. It starts at the Picasso statue near the Washington stop on the Blue Line and end at the Halsted stop on the Blue Line.

Length: 8.5 miles, option to shorten to 5 miles by stopping @ UIC/Halstead Blue Line stop

Time: approx 3 hours

Map of Route: http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/159690168

Please note, I have never walked this route before, it's something that I found in a book, and so it's possible we may get off-course and need to reroute or backtrack at some point.

We will end the hike near the Halsted Blue Line stop. At this point, we'll find a place for dinner for whoever would like to go eat. (Suggestions??)

    Enjoyed the hike and explored some places in the city I had never been to. Lunch was great -- sorry so many people missed it.

      My train doesn't get in until a few minutes before 11 at Millenium Station (Randolph & Michigan). Don't wait for me. I'll just start walking west on Washington and meet up with you (assuming you will be walking east as shown in the map). See you tomorrow.

      We'll wait until 11:15 before starting, so you might make it to us in time. Alternately, you could meet us at the silver "snake" pedestrian bridge over Columbus Ave.

    What a great idea; however, I will be in MI. I'm sure it will be a great hike.
