North Branch Riverwalk Description

The North Branch Riverwalk is a 0.6 mile biking and walking trail located on Chicago's northside along the North Branch of the Chicago River, nestled between Gordon Tech High School and Lane Tech High School. There's potential for expansion via the Addison Underbridge Connection, which will be part of a bigger 6-block riverwalk extension by the Chicago Dept. of Transportation. The trail goes through Clark (Richard) Playlot Park, where there is a boat house that offers canoe and kayak rentals.
