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
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
Helps seniors and has very real benefits for maintaining mobility and independence
