Best Place to Jog 

Queeny Park

Most serious runners would not consider a place where the longest loop is four miles a good place to jog, but they would, and do, make an exception for Queeny Park. If you live in West St. Louis County, Queeny Park could easily become your default jogging place. If not, it's a worthwhile getaway. Big, old trees shade most of the trails. The trails are wide with a variety of surfaces — pavement, gravel, hard-packed dirt — and they hold up in winter, too. The hills are enough to slow you down, but the wildlife and meandering paths help take your mind off them. The possible reward: a big gobbler strutting into view. Don't want to take it easy? Do hill repeats on the steep s.o.b. that runs alongside the American Kennel Club's Museum of the Dog. If you want to make a day of it, the 570-acre county park is also home to a skating rink, air-conditioned meeting hall, tennis courts and outdoor Olympic-size pool.
