APRIL EVENT:Little Mountain

Wellness Walk on Little Mountain

Mount Vernon Parks Foundation Vice President Peter Wheeler will lead a family friendly, 3-mile walk on the trails at Little Mountain Park. This is a great introduction to the expansive trail system and Peter will share some easy ways to get out walking as well as maps and apps to use for Little Mountain. Come experience for yourself how a walk in the forest can sooth the mind and boost mental wellness.
