Make physical activity a part of your everyday life
and improve your health!
Take the first step
Explore new trails with Cleveland Metroparks Walking Works Program. Research shows walking leads to better
health. Now you can feel better while discovering the wonders of nature.
From June through October, hike at least eight of Walking Works Hikes on your own - any time - it's fun and easy. After completing each walk, date your Walking Works form. Complete eight walks and return your form to Cleveland Metroparks to receive this year's Walking Works shield
and a voucher good
for a free picnic lunch at Wayside Furniture Café in Akron.
Display your shield on your own walking stick or purchase a walking stick at any EarthWords Nature Shop.
Want to walk with others while learning about the natural features of the trails? Naturalist-led hikes
along some of the designated trails will be available in June through
October. Look for Naturalist-Led Walking Works Hikes in the Emerald Necklace newsletter.
