Trapped in an urban jungle and dying to run outside? Good news: you don’t have to go far to hit these sweet trails and get in your workout.
Ann Arbor, Michigan
20 minutes north of the city, the Pinckney State Recreation Area’s Potawatomi Trail offers up 17.5 miles of creek crossings, steep climbs and descents, and many sections with gnarly roots. Not surprisingly, the Potawatomi plays host to some of the best trail races in the Midwest, ranging from 5 miles to full marathons. Within city limits, several parks provide varied trails, but the Nichols Arboretum, which is operated by the University of Michigan, is a favorite for students and post-grads alike.
