Seniors Hike for Health

This program is designed to promote healthy living and encourage seniors 55+ years of age to get outdoors and stay active and healthy!

We visit open space preserves, city, county and state parks and beaches from San Francisco to Monterey Bay. Along our hikes we stop to talk about the unique habitat, beautiful plants and animals as well as the fascinating natural and cultural history.

 

We have a great time creating friendships, and enjoy the many health benefits hiking has to offer seniors including:

  • Improved cardiovascular health

  • Improved circulation

  • Reduced arthritis, joint and knee pain

  • Increase in bone density, which can improve bone health and reduce the risk of osteoporosis

  • Stronger muscles

  • Decrease in feelings of depression and isolation
