Try the Sonoma County Trails Challenge
Sonoma County Regional Parks invites you to hike five or more trails featured in a new Trails Challenge guidebook any time before Nov. 30 and enter its first “Trails Challenge.” Tell Regional Parks a little about your hikes when you’re done and you can get a free Trails Challenge water bottle or other gift, and be entered into drawings for Regional Park memberships.
Free and designed for all fitness levels, the Trails Challenge is a self-guided program to complete on your schedule. Hike on your own, with your dog, with family, with friends or with co-workers. Cyclists and equestrians are invited to take the Trails Challenge too.
Health professionals agree that adopting a walking routine is one of the simplest, most effective changes we can make to improve our health. In addition, studies show that people who exercise outdoors are more likely to feel satisfied with their workout and more likely to repeat it.
