Hike for Health 2022

Exercise is vital to your overall health. The American Heart Association recommends fitting in at least 150 minutes of heart-pumping physical activity each week. Being physically active is important to prevent heart disease and stroke, which are the nation’s top causes of death. Studies also show that exercise goes a long way in helping cancer patients stay strong through treatments and ward off future cancer reoccurrence.

Hike for Health is a weekly one-mile hiking series that can help you achieve a half marathon in just 13 weeks!

From the beginner to the avid hiker, everyone is welcome to attend. Hike for Health encourages you to take steps towards a healthier you with group hiking opportunities.

When hiking, it’s important to be prepared. Look to the weather forecast and dress accordingly with comfortable clothing and shoes, take water and a light snack, and wear sunscreen. One may also want to wear insect repellent.

These are “all weather” hikes. This means that the leader will always show up at the trail-head regardless of the weather forecast. If there is a consensus of the hikers at 10:30am that the weather is too bad for an enjoyable hike then it will be cancelled.

Thirteen weekly  one-mile hikes on paved surfaces.

Each guided hike begins at 10:30 a.m., and all are approximately one mile.
