Phillip Hutchinson replied to Dawn's discussion Continued concerns about the trail separation
"It's a matter of perspective. I don't commute on that section of LFT but if I did I'd likely just ride the ped path west of Cricket Hill to avoid the conflicts you note and take a more direct route.  The only time I'm up…"

"If you want to avoid this, and don't mind a little gravel, when headed northbound turn right by the clocktower and go behind the golf tee off.  It's a gravel park district road with butterflies, birds, and a family of raccoons. It…"

Hey Dawn! I also live in Edgewater, right by that nasty Clark/Ridge debacle that you referred to. Anyway, if you take Ravenswood north, it'll spit you out on Peterson, just a few blocks west of Ridge. From there, it's not too far to that Target. Hope this helps!
