Gilmer County on the Move – Walking Groups Challenge II members, friends, and neighbors are invited to get a little exercise and help celebrate the American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day at Cedar Creek State Park on Saturday, June 1st.
According to Jeff Campbell, Gilmer County Economic Development Association’s Health & Wellness Committee Chairman and Project Coordinator of Gilmer County on the Move, “We are proud to hold this great event for the first time and invite guests to bring the family and be active: walk the grounds, hike one or all of the seven trails, bike, paddle boat, swim, play basketball, tennis, volleyball, softball, bird watching/photography and you are welcome to bring your dog on a leash. There is no cost – come spend the day in the park with us.”
The first 100 Gilmer County on the Move Walking Group Challenge team participants that turn in their first six week Walking Log will receive a 2013 GCOM T-Shirt. Our base will be the Apple Shelter for the day, providing maps & trail guides as well as water and light snacks. Any local business or individuals who would like to donate to help us with these expenses is greatly appreciated.
Nestled in the ‘Heart of West Virginia’ Cedar Creek State Park’s 2,483 lush acres offer a pastoral setting of rolling hills and wide valleys that provide an ideal backdrop for a wide variety of recreational opportunities from cycling to pleasant family strolls.
