Hiking for Health & Happiness

Monday, May 17, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT


Research demonstrates that outdoor exercise, such as hiking, offers health and well-being benefits. Join the group for a brief nature meditation followed by a two-mile hike. Please arrive no later than 15 minutes before the indicated start time, wear comfortable hiking or running shoes, bring a water bottle and dress for the weather. The hiking terrain is not paved and we may encounter irregular surface paths – all part of the beauty and joy of the hike! Hike will be cancelled if the weather is uncooperative. Links below provide a trail map for each hike.

Please be prepared to wear a mask and practice social distancing if indicated on the day of the hike. Meet next to the parking lot 15 minutes before the start time.
