THE TRAIL ... Boxers’ Trail in Strawberry Mansion, Fairmount Park
TERRAIN ... This 3.8-mile trail overlooks the Schuylkill and was once the training grounds of Philly boxing legends, including Joe Frazer.
FIT TIP ... The runner-friendly trail makes for some great cross-training cardio: Use the flat, easy-on-the-knees surface for interval work, or stop along the way to work in some upper-body exercises—the Strawberry Mansion neighborhood playground is a great spot.
ACCESS ... Begin in East Fairmount Park at Strawberry Mansion and follow the Park down to Fountain Green Drive, where it connects with the Schuylkill River Trail
