WelcomeMaking Our Community a Better Place to Live

Healthy People Healthy Trails is an innovative program designed to strengthen the connection between the use of local public parks and trails and individual healthcare. The program is supported by a dynamic group of community partners including local doctors and health care providers, trail advocates and stewards, land managers, and the National Park Service.

Healthy People Healthy Trails offers a set of maps with easy local walking routes. Browse the website and choose a trail that is right for you. We hope you find the maps useful and the trails enjoyable!
