Run The Planet is proud to introduce our new affiliate Run.com, the best running route resource on the web. If you are looking for a new Beijing running route, or want to share your favorite Beijing running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
Fragrant Hills in the northwest corner of Beijing offers hills, dirt road, single-track, and a run above the smog. The area surrounding the park is where the trails are, not inside where the crowds are. Note: do not enter the pay park but access trails to the North or South. Both give you access to the trail system. If you find a trail going up, follow it until you reach the summit, and then you will get a view of the vastness of the trail system available. If in doubt ask "How do I get to the top?" ("Shang mian zenme zou?"). All trails are up or down. This is not for the faint of heart. Enjoy this back-woods mega-city adventure and let everyone know if you find others.
