 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.

Ray Tenzer is moving to San Diego after 18 years in the Heads Up Walkers activity.
