I'm looking for new running trails. I've run enough out at Valley Forge and Ridley Creek State Park but I'm looking for new options to keep it fresh.

I prefer pavement/asphalt. I like the idea of a loop around rather then just a straight up and straight back, if that makes sense. Preferably 5+ miles.

Who's got some suggestions?

Schuykill River Trail. Only partially paved, but scenic and seemingly unending.

The only reason I specifically ask for pavement is because that's what I'll be running on for the half marathon/possible marathon so I'd rather train on the terrain. I don't mind dirt running and actually could use them when training for stuff like Mudders/Spartans.

Try the Chicago lakefront trail. It's like 17 miles from 71st st all the way to Hollywood or some shit.

Bellevue is nice but 6 bucks to get in. Carousel park is not far past it, nicer park in my opinion, and free.
