Naturally Fit Hike

Darke County Parks is hosting a series of fitness programs called Naturally Fit occurring the fourth Monday of every month. Everyone wants to lead healthier lives and spend more time outdoors. However, workout machines aren’t always environmentally friendly, and gyms aren’t very exciting. Besides, sometimes life just gets in the way! Use these programs as an “excuse” to schedule time outside and get moving. Each of these programs focuses more on fitness than nature, with everyone moving at their own pace, whether that’s one loop or ten. The November program will take place November 28th at 4:30pm at Routzong Preserve which has 1.5 miles of trails through 55 acres of beech and maple forest. The park is located on Routzong Rd. just a half mile north of State Route 571 east of Greenville. Meet there, and don’t forget to bring a water bottle. For questions or weather updates, call the Nature Center at 548-0165.
