As the weather starts to warm, most of us will get outside and start enjoying what nature has to offer after a long and cold winter. Many of us will likely hit the trails across the area to take part in walking, hiking, running, biking, and anything else you can do on a trail.

Not to mention, they really do highlight the main thoroughfares through the cities. Check these out below. The information found in this article is courtesy of FlowingData and mashable.com
