Feel Good Friday: Take a Hike (and a free hiking download)

Posted Oct 22 2010 12:59pm

I recently had the pleasure of leading my sixth hiking group through Braintree Adult Education .  We started with a classroom session, followed by a hike a Blue Hills a few days later.  Hiking could quite possibly be the perfect activity:  you get some fresh air, exercise, connections with nature and connections with other people.

Here are a few photos from our recent hike.  This first one is a view of Boston from the Eliot Tower at the top of Great Blue Hill.

And here is a picture of the group. Although gorgeous and clear, the air was chilly requiring us to bundle up a bit.

Fall in New England is a perfect time to take a hike and explore local trails. In fact today Boston.com offers a list of top 10 late fall hikes in New England and a separate list of 15 other great hikes in the area. Check it out, get out of the house and take a hike!  Hiking, in my opinion, is definitely feel good living.

New to hiking or need a little more information? I’ve been leading hiking groups through the local adult education program for almost five years.  I compiled the information I’ve collected into a short ebook called Hiking Basics: Gear, Safety and Places to Visit so You Can Feel Good About Hiking .  It’s compiled for the beginner hiker or someone who just wants a little more information before hitting the trails.  By no means is this comprehensive.  Consider it a start. I include safety, gear, stretches and places to visit to help get you going.  Know someone who might like this? Please feel free to share the post or the download.  The more people hiking and enjoying nature, the healthier we’ll all be.

How about you? What felt good for you this week?
