Walk Maryland Day is a celebration of our state’s official exercise and a call to action to support safe walking and walkability. Anyone can participate, and today in Garrett County, we get to walk in the sunshine!
If you are interested in a social gathering, we have two options: I will be at Herrington Manor State Park at 4:00 pm. We already had a fat tire bike ride scheduled to leave the Lake House at 4:30. (more details are on our events calendar https://gcinmotion.garrettcountyapps.com/community-calendar/ ) so you can bring your mountain bike or get a bike from Herrington to ride with me as we celebrate our state’s official exercise day! If biking isn’t your thing, Herrington has an accessible path by the lake and is equipped with handicap parking. There are several miles of safe trails for hiking as well!
OR meet our registered dietician, Amy Ritchie, in the lobby of the Health Department at 4:30 to walk as a group!
The American Heart Association recommends that everyone reach a minimum of 30 minutes of some form of cardiovascular exercise 5 to 7 days per week; let’s ensure we exercise on this beautiful fall day!

I walk on the road I live on. It has very little traffic and is lined with lots of maple trees that are so beautiful in the fall.
Walking and enjoying God’s creation at the same time is good for the body and the soul.
I rode the new single track at Herrington, and it is SWEET! Crisp leaves, flowing trail, and great cardio! Join us next time; if you need a bike from Herrington, we’ve got you covered!
I love to walk in all the seasons of Garrett County! Our scenery is phenomenal!
It’s another beautiful fall day in Garrett County! I’m hoping to get out tonight after work for a walk.
Have enjoyed getting back into walking.
My husband and I live near Wisp. We like to walk there and then walk the perimeter of the parking area plus up to the yurts and the tubing hill. We also like to walk in some of the neighborhoods around us. Love the hills, they make it more challenging. Fork Run Park is also close so we will drive up there. Lots of nice trails.
Walking in my neighborhood is fun watching the stages of the trees turning their beautiful fall colors!
We enjoy walking with our golden retriever at Broadford Park.
I like walking with my dog
