Also referred to as the Lion’s Paw Fit Trail, it was established in the Fall 2008 by Campus Recreation.
The Trail is just under half a mile long (.40 mile) with 8 fitness exercises along the way.

The Lion’s Paw Fit Trail is a timber fitness trail which combines scientifically designed exercises with walking or jogging to provide a well-balanced physical fitness routine for the entire body. Individual exercise stations with apparatus are spaced along the Rudolph Campus, beginning at the main entrance around Racanelli Center, in front of Fortunoff Hall, past the Kramer Science Center and finishing by the main entrance. Participants proceed from one exercise station of the fitness trail to the next, following “The Paw”, and performing the exercises illustrated at each station.
