Getting There

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, with a total of 17 access ramps, all of which are accessible to people with disabilities.

The best way to get to The 606 is by foot, bike or The CTA.

Easiest transit access is via the CTA Blue Line – visitors will be closest to The 606 access points at either the Western or Damen stops. At the Damen stop, visitors will find themselves at the Damen/Milwaukee/North intersection, the hub of Wicker Park’s shopping, restaurant and club district.

Visitors also can take the Blue Line to Logan Square, 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 approximately one mile south on Kedzie to The 606.

The 606 is also accessible via Metra (commuter rail) at the Healy stop on the Milwaukee District North Line, about a mile north of the west end of the trail, or the Clybourn stop on the Union Pacific North and Northwest Lines which is just two blocks from the east end of the trail.

There is no dedicated parking facility for The 606, but there is metered and street parking in the neighborhoods surrounding it. (Some areas may require resident permits to park.)
