Rx for Outdoor Activity

One exciting part of the Healthy People Healthy Trails program is that local healthcare providers can actually “prescribe” walking to their patients.

Providers fill out the Healthy People Healthy Trails ‘Rx for Outdoor Activity’ and send the prescription home with their patients. The patient also receives a Trail Guide to help them pick a trail that is right for them. Working with a healthcare provider to set goals for walking can help patients in our community get active and live healthily.
