Seniors Hike for Health

Sign Up

Thanks for submitting!

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

  • 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

  • Increased cognitive function

  • Better scores on memory tests

  • Improved reaction time

 

We provide sandwhiches and meet the 2nd Saturday of every month from 10:00am - 12:30pm. Please bring water, sunblock and/or hat and closed toes shoes.
