New Haven, a coastal city on the northern shore of Long Island Sound, is home to Yale University. There’s a nice variety of running in New Haven, much of it overlapping and centrally located.
Any runner visiting New Haven will want to take a run around the historic Town Green and the campus of Yale University. Among the other best places to run in New Haven are waterfront paths in the Long Wharf Park and along the East Shore, lovely the gorgeous residential streets of the Prospect Hill Historic District. Those looking for a long off-road run should choose a section of the 58-mileFarmington Canal Heritage Trail, whose southern trailhead is in central New Haven. Just west of town, Edgewood Park has a nice running path, and houses Yale’s athletic facilities. Those looking for hills and trails will love East Rock Park and West Rock Ridge State Park.
