How would you like to go on a year long journey that will change your life in a positive way? From bonding with friends and family/furry friends, making new connections, building confidence, increasing physical fitness, relieving stress, disconnecting from technology, and exploring a whole host of beautiful new places, the benefits are endless!

The goal is simple, sign up and commit to a hike a week. That’s it! It doesn’t even have to be in a park or on a trail – find a spot that works for you, be it a local greenway, walking track, or forest. Best of all it’s FREE to join. Sign up and learn more at

Gyms may be closed in your area, or may be requiring masks to workout (like mine is), but the outdoors is a great free option to get some physical activity in and disconnect from the daily grind at the same time.

The ask is simple, the challenge is persistence – make it a goal to get outdoors a minimum of once per week for the next year! You can start any month of the year, but January is an ideal time to set your intention for the upcoming year. Think of all the places you can explore by making THIS your year of adventure!
