Study after study underscores the value of exercise in an overall healthy lifestyle. Walking stimulates the growth of healthy bone tissue, helps keep your metabolism tuned up for weight control, and improves sleep and mental health. Join Cheshire Walkers on one of our weekly, Wednesday morning walks or hikes in Cheshire County.
To keep the group rolling along merrily, please be sure to dress appropriately for weather (layers are recommended), and bring water in a non-breakable container. For most hikes, hiking boots or sturdy shoes with good tread and adequate ankle support are essential. At the request of our participants, please leave dogs at home. Occasionally, muddy or wet sections, or places which are slippery due to leaves on the ground may be encountered on the trails, so be prepared! Each outing is rated according to difficulty and distance. As with all exercise, be sure to check with your doctor before beginning a new regimen. In case of inclement weather or for Cheshire Walkers information, call leaders at numbers listed or 354-5454 x2322.
No need to sign up, just come!
