 THE WALKING PROGRAM AT BRANCH 8

Our group is called the “Heads Up Walkers”. We walk just about every week and encourage significant others and guests of our group to join us. We are not into mountain climbing nor do we go over dangerous or slippery trails. One hour walks start on Thursday Mornings at 9:30 AM.  Most of the one-hour walks are on the relatively level paved ground and are “out and back” which means you walk for 30 minutes at your own pace, then turn around and walk 30 minutes back to the starting point. We leave the trail by 10:30 AM and go to a nearby cafe for coffee, snacks, and interesting conversation.  Spouses, friends, and well-mannered dogs are welcome.

Note, all walks will be abiding to all of the external exercise rules from national, state, county, city and SIR organizations. 

Currently all of our active walkers have full vaccines so we are walking without masks and no social distancing. 

After June 1, new walkers must have signed and submitted the Branch 8 Vaccine and Waiver document.
