About Mt. Airy Forest, Cincinnati:

Mt. Airy Forest is, in fact, one of the larger parks located within a city's limits in the country. Even Central Park can only boast 843 acres, while Mt. Airy holds a massive 1,469.9 acres. Runners will get a wilderness experience that mirrors the Sierras at times. The course winds through all of the features Mt. Airy has to offer, such as its lush evergreens, dense harwoods, open meadows, flowing rivers, and of course, hill climbs and ridge traverses.

Mt. Airy Forest is listed as one of the best trail running locations to see before you die. Check it out: http://www.shape.com/lifestyle/fit-getaways/7-trails-run-you-die
