This program is designed to encourage seniors to get outdoors and stay active!
We visit city parks, county parks, open space preserves and state parks and beaches throughout Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties. Along our hikes we stop to talk about the 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,
Reduced arthritis, joint and knee pain
Increase in bone density, which can improve bone health and reduce the risk of osteoporosis
Decrease in feelings of depression and isolation
Increased cognitive function
Better scores on memory tests
Improved reaction time
We provide lunch and water and meet the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month from 10:00am - 12:30pm
Hikes are limited to 12 people per group. There will be a three-point check in system and safety wristband.
We'll happily provide anyone showing up with an unsecure facial mask with a new mask.
All registrants must provide their full contact information at the time of no touch check-in.
