Celebrate National ‘Take a Hike Day’ this Nov. 17, 2020

It’s time to celebrate Mother Nature, so lace up your hiking boots, collar your dog, get some water and a snack and hit the trails on National “Take a Hike Day,” which is Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2020.

This is day hosted by The American Hiking Society, whose mission is to envision a world where everyone feels a sense of belonging in the hiking community and has lasting access to meaningful hiking experiences, be that in urban, front country, or backcountry settings.

“We are so excited to partner with the American Hiking Society, says local recreation director Judith Sumner as we celebrate National Take A Hike Day.” “All of our goals are to foster a hike-local mindset encouraging people to explore their city’s hidden trails and neighborhoods.”

Sumner said that hiking may sound like an intimidating task that involves a long drive to a distant place, “However, we have local parks and trails right here near your neighborhood that are the perfect places for everyone to experience the benefits of nature.”

“With gyms not always readily available due to the pandemic, people can get their exercise just by going outdoors,” Sumner said. “You can run outside, take leisurely walks, climb over logs, even do a physical workout on a trail.”
