Yes, we realize that there is a BS holiday for just about everything nowadays. However, today is November 17th and it’s National Take A Hike Day and that’s pretty awesome. Not to mention, the weather is pretty close to perfect and New Jersey has hundreds of amazing places to hikes.
Check out our places to run section for a few listings of good hikes and feel free to send us a write up and some pics of your favorite running spot too (we’ll give you free stuff if you do).
What’s better the hiking anyway?
- It’s quiet.
- There is no traffic.
- It’s fun.
- You get to see cool things like sunsets, birds and other animals.
- It’s free.
Plus, we have so many great places to hike including tons of beautiful trails in our county and state parks. We also love the smaller, more intimate, tracts of trails that serve as an oasis in a crowded town.
So, grab your boots and your trail mix and go enjoy it…not just today, but as often as you can! Happy National Take a Hike Day RunJersey nation.
