We're excited to announce 'Hikes for Health', a month-long focus on health, wellness, and spending time outside. Each week includes its own mini-challenge, virtual event, sweepstakes prize, and inspiring special guest — to register and learn more information, click here!
Whether it's a long-awaited trek to a place you've never been or meandering around your local parks, trails are the backbone of hikes. During the week of 5/31 - 6/6, take a snapshot of trail signage that gives you the important information to get you safely on your way. Afterwards, consider taking a break from your digital device for the rest of the hike and simply enjoy the beauty your surroundings offer.
Post a photo of trail signage from your favorite trail and share a fun fact (ie. where it's located, how it helped you, the land management agency behind it, or what native land you're on)
Are you ready for Week 4?
I hiked this pretty massive regional park near where I live. I have hiked there a number of times, but I still seem to get lost at least once each time. Today was no exception - so I had to follow the navigation from AllTrails app on my phone pretty often - couldn't quite tuck the phone away for most of the hike. Local hikers know that there are not many signs at this park & I'm not the only one who's gotten lost.) But I could spot a few less official looking signs that did help me follow the trail.
What a wonderful hike today. I love the trails at Santiago Oaks Regional Park. They have hikes for all levels of hikers. This particular trail leads to this wonderful view of the more advanced hikes. I am working towards those trails. I never thought I would be able to make it up this hill to see these advanced trails but here I am. Hiking is my favorite form of recreation I can think of. And of course I need to take my baby girl on the hikes with me!
