Winter Fitness Hikes

Hike your way to better health and stave off the cold-weather blues with Healthy Adams County’s guided Winter Fitness Hikes! Hiking is a great aerobic activity. These fully-guided hikes are open to beginner and seasoned hikers; we will take breaks as necessary and maintain a moderate group pace. Safety and support are top priorities, and we will practice Leave No Trace outdoor ethics.

 

Hikes step off at 1:30 p.m. Please register prior to start of hike.
