National Take A Hike Day

You already know this healthy activity is great for your heart and lungs, but get this: It can instantly lift your mood too! The secret is to walk near a body of water for just 20 minutes, according to a new study. Oceans, rivers, lakes….all of them count!

Walking in the woods also promotes a sense of well-being! With over 60,000 miles of trails in the National Trail System across the 50 states, there is no lack of opportunity to take a hike.

Make a beeline for the one nearest you!
