Bike the North Shore Channel Trail

The fully paved North Shore Channel Trail extends from the junction of Lawrence Avenue and Francisco Avenue in Chicago to the junction of Green Bay Road and McCormick Boulevard in northern Evanston. We’ll be starting at the southern trail head after meeting “First Slice” Pie Café & Coffee Shop in the Ravenswood neighborhood. Most of the trail runs alongside the North Shore Channel, a drainage and aeration canal built in 1909; the southern 0.25 mile follows the North Branch of the Chicago River. The Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park ( from Dempster to Touhy is an unexpected counterpoint to the adjacent channel landscape.
