"A walk in nature walks the soul back home"
- Mary Davis
All our senses are awakened when we spend time in Nature. Hiking helps
connect us with our roots to this Earth, giving us a feeling of
responsibility to protect and preserve its sacredness. It's a way to get
reacquainted with our personal passions.
Why Should You Hike?
Building strong muscles and bones - Improving your sense of balance - Improving your heart health - Decreasing the risk of certain respiratory problems
Being in nature can boost your mood and improve mental health.
Spending quality time in the great outdoors reduces stress, calms anxiety,
and can lead to a lower risk of depression, according to a study done by researchers at Stanford University.
Grab a friend, neighbor, or family member for more fun on the trail.
Hiking with a partner, or even in a group, can improve the strength and
health of your relationships. Because hiking ranges in difficulty from an extremely
challenging climb to a casual way of spending time outside, it’s a great way to strengthen the
friendships or bonds you have with your companions.
