Benefits of Trail Use

Research has demonstrated over and over the multitude of physical and mental benefits bestowed on trail users.  Even short trips along the trail can help clear the mind, strengthen the muscles, and raise metabolism.

This web page hopes to be a collection of resources for information relating to the benefits of trail use.  Information from experts, peer-reviewed scientific research, and anecdotal stories published in news journals.  We hope you find this information beneficial!

Join our host and General Manager, Gary Davis, as he speaks with special guest Terrell W. Zollinger, DrPH (and Epidemiologist) regarding how to balance our health and safety with the need to get outside and be physically active.

  1. Promotes Healthy Weight Management

  2. Prevents Lifestyle Disease

  3. Improves Leg Strength

  4. Improves Core Strength

  5. Reduces Cancer Risk

  6. Promotes Bone Health

  7. Promotes Mental Well-being


We hope you enjoy the article as well!
