The next time someone tells you “Go take a hike,” you may want to thank them for looking out for your health! Being out in nature, away from the chaos of our daily lives and technology can allow people to connect with themselves and nature in a way that brings about peace and a sense of well-being. Ongoing research shows that going on a hike or a walk offers tremendous benefits for your physical, as well as mental health and well-being.
Meet in the Medford Campus Theater and hear from one of our Medford Leas physicians about the benefits of hiking on nature trails or walking on paved surfaces.
Something as simple as a daily brisk walk or hike can help you live a healthier life. Learn simple tips in terms of your hiking and walking techniques. Learn how to get into a routine, set realistic goals, and stay motivated.
Following this informative program, you will have the opportunity to choose a hike on a portion of the over four miles of unpaved Nature Trails on the Medford Campus, or a
walk along paved surfaces and under cover with protection from the elements.
Both opportunities will afford you great views of the Medford Campus, an important component of The Barton Arboretum and Nature Preserve of Medford Leas. It is recommended that you wear comfortable shoes, long sleeve shirts, and trousers.
