Walking and Running Routes in Palo Alto - A Great Resource Site

Original post made by Sanford Forte, Evergreen Park, on Aug 5, 2006

Here's a very cool website that describes local walking and running routes - or let's you create one - anywhere in America. Web Link

Here's the result from a simple search for "Palo Alto, CA"
Web Link
distance_from=&distance_to=&distanceUnits=mi&startType=&startName=&facility=&city=Palo+Alto&state=CA&rating=

You can be more specific in your search, fine-tuning with variables for length of walk/run, etc. Anyone have any suggestions for great local walking/running routes?

oops! it looks like the Palo Alto Online URL translators aren't working, as the "Palo Alto
link, above takes you to Calgary and Brazil!

In any case, try it out on your own - it's really quite helpful, and already lists a few dozen routes.

This is a great site! I've already bookmarked a couple of paths I'm interested in. Thank you for sharing!
