TAKE A HIKE

Hiking can burn more than 300 calories per hour!

Before hitting the trail, pack appropriate food and beverages to keep up your energy and stay hydrated.

Good snacks for hiking:

    • Peanut butter on whole grain bread.  You can add banana slices as well
    • Nuts, dried fruits and dry whole-grain cereal

    • Carrots, celery, apples, raisin
    • Energy bars

Water is the beverage of choice for low to moderate short hikes.

For longer, more intense hikes, you may need a sports drink with electrolytes.

SPRING IS A GREAT TIME TO GET OUT AND ENJOY A HIKE!
