It’s the day of the week to plan a walk together sometime this week as part of our Summer Challenge. Today I want to share about the Rails to Trails Conservancy taking place all over the country. Here’s what their mission statement says:
Rails-to-Trails Conservancy is a nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C., whose mission it is to create a nationwide network of trails from former rail lines and connecting corridors to build healthier places for healthier people.
Tom and I have enjoyed biking and walking on several trails in and around Orlando. It’s usually beautiful, quiet and paved. If you are interested in discovering what trails are available near your home check out this handy Trail Link that provides trail information listed by state.
In addition RTC provides a free iPhone app to help you discover what trails are close to where you are, even while visiting other state. For more info on this great resource click the image below.
Won’t you share with us a photo of your Wednesday’s Walk?
And when you do, use the hashtag #WednesdaysWalk. It’ll be fun to see what the view was for you as you took a walk together. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to add your photo there as well. I would love to see Wednesday’s Walk become the hottest trend in social media as a way of elevating the importance of quality time spent together…it can happen, one step at a time. 🙂
