It is inexpensive
It can be done almost anywhere
It's good for your heart and overall health.
The only equipment required for walking is a good pair of shoes and socks.
This trail guide is a collaborative effort between the Pitt County Physical Activity and Nutrition Coalition, the Pitt County Cardiovascular Health Program and the Pitt County Planning Department to identify good places to walk in Pitt County. These collaborating partners would like to identify additional walking spaces being utilized by citizens of Pitt County as well as to assist community groups in developing walking spaces or walking programs.
In order to improve the quality of life and health of our community, efforts have been made over the past several years to develop safe, accessible places where people of all ages and abilities can walk in Pitt County. These efforts are part of a larger mission to build a community environment which is supportive of physical activity - an Active Community Environment or ACE. Please notify the office at 252-830-4216 or252-902-2426 if you have any comments or concerns.
