Subject: RE: Places to run in Philly
Depending on where you are on Walnut, you will probably do most of your running on Kelly Drive which follows the Schuylkill river. If you are on the east side near University City just head over the Walnut bridge to the east side and take some steps down. The path is paved but most has a single track shoulder if you want dirt. There is a popular loop that's around 8.5 miles down Kelly Drive and up West River on the (duh) west side. That's 8.5 from the Art Museum.
About 5 miles down Kelly you can also hop on the Manayunk towpath which is a mix of dirt and paved, this continues for 20+ miles so if you bike it can be nice to ride down to Valley Forge and back.
Fairmont park along the Wissahichon has the best dirt trails, but if you don't have a car you will be looking at a 10mile round trip just to get there. Public trans will get you close however but those trains don't run all that often. Best option is just to bike there and run if you want to change from Kelly drive.
Neighborhoods can change quickly so learn them before venturing off, although Walnut is good along most of it's length until you go west of University City.
