Cherokee Park 5-mile Loop (most convenient; Yost (Yellow) Trail in Jefferson Forest (best trail).
I've been running since 1980 and trail running since 2006. I've run a few ultras (no 100s yet) and a couple of trail marathons in addition to the shorter distances.
Terrain variety and the great people.
I run trails by choice and roads by necessity. I'm a big fan of minimalist footwear and like muddy, hilly single-track a lot better than groomed pathways that pass for trails in some parks.
This is a great way to get the word out and get more folks out on the trails.
