Top 8 U.S. Cities for Trail Running

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.
No, that’s not a misprint. You can run dozens of miles of trails within Central Park alone, while the boroughs provide a number of other parks (like the Bronx’s 2,700-acre Pelham Bay Park) with myriad soft-surface trails. Then, starting at about 20 miles north of downtown, the great upstate offers untamed natural areas for tough, technical trail running.
