Explore Nature With A Hike/walk
Welcome to the Step Up & Reconnect challenge, powered by Humana!
No matter where you live, there’s bound to be a scenic place that exposes you to fresh air, sunshine, and maybe some nature. As we kick off Day 1 of this challenge, find a new hiking trail or place to go for a walk outside today.
Not sure how to find a good trail? Use this search tool called All Trails. It lets you search by city, park, or trail name, then offers suggestions on the best trails in the area. Recommendations include a map, trail difficulty rating, and reviews from other people. BONUS: There’s also a mobile app you can download if you prefer.
But wait — we’ve got one more step to today’s challenge. Invite someone to check out the trail with you. Use the time to not only get moving, but to also reconnect with someone you hold dear. You’ll return home feeling rejuvenated both physically and emotionally.
Get pumped for your walk in the great outdoors. Use these 10 tips to have your best hike ever.
Let us know how your walk went! Better yet show us! Post a picture in our discussion in the challenge update section here or on Facebook.
