Bar Harbor, Maine/Acadia National Park
Running camps are a great way to explore new training territory and that’s how I discovered this awesome place to run. Bar Harbor Maine and Acadia National Park contain 127 miles of trails with 57 miles of gravel roads originally designed for horse-drawn carriages. This affords a great off-road experience without the usual sprained ankles that often come with the rockier hiking trails. If you’re anything like me though, you’ll want to bring some friends with a good sense of direction or a really good GPS system. It’s not quite as beautiful when you’re hopelessly lost.
