We’re hosting a Senior Stroll
Wednesday, June 6th at 5:00pm
at Walnut Mountain Park in Liberty, NY.
This group outing is the first of a monthly series aimed at engaging folks age 60 and up to come out and enjoy several beautiful beginner trails in Sullivan County. The experienced trip leaders are Lisa Lyons of Morgan Outdoors in Livingston Manor and Glenn Horton of the Friends of Walnut group currently constructing an ADA accessible trail at Walnut Mountain Park. They will have a theme for each outing and hope to help participants select the outing that best fits their physical capability. There will be hiking poles available to use at no cost, with simple coaching on how to use them to improve stability and enjoyment.
This first outing is 1 mile in length, on a fairly level dirt roadbed with a gentle ascent for a ¼ mile. This outing will include a guided tour of the ADA trail and a preview of what is yet to come. Participants should be able to walk a mile unassisted and have permission from their doctor if under medical care. Future Senior Strolls will be different lengths and difficulty so that participants can find an outing that fits their ability level.
REGISTRATION is required!
Simply call Morgan Outdoors (845) 439-5507 by 12:00pm Wednesday, June 6th or email to email@example.com.
