St. Cloud is a commune just south of the 15th arrondissement, on the north side of the Seine and not far from Bois de Boulogne. There are some great running opportunities in the area. The signature route is in Parc St. Cloud, which includes some of the most beautiful gardens in Europe (including Marie Antoinette’s rose garden!). We’ve mapped out a good 5-mile tour of some of the park’s loveliest paths and allées. A good place to come for hills! ROUTE MAP.
Additional Options: The Bois de Boulogne is just across the Seine from Parc St. Cloud. There are also two other forest areas nearby, with numerous wooded paths: the Fausses-Reposes Forest, and the 1,100-hectare Meudon Forest.
