“TAKE A HIKE” WITH PARK SUPERINTENDENT DAVID SMITH APRIL 23

“TAKE A HIKE” WITH PARK SUPERINTENDENT DAVID SMITH APRIL 23

The Morongo Basin Healthcare District and Joshua Tree National Park have partnered on a project designed to promote wellness through exercise and even help patients healing from illness, injury or surgery. Called “Take a Hike,” this free program enables local medical providers to write a prescription good for 90-days’ entrance into Joshua Tree National Park to walk or hike on pre-designated easy, moderate or strenuous trails. Patients who receive the prescription present it at the park entrance. Kirby Davis has more information about a special hike with the park’s superintendent…

To promote the Take a Hike program—and in honor of April 23, National Park Prescription Day, a national celebration promoting the growing movement of prescribing parks to improve health—a special hike is planned with Joshua Tree National Park Superintendent David Smith, Sunday, April 23, at 9 a.m. sharp. Participants will meet at the Twin Tanks parking area. The group, which is limited to 40 participants, will hike on the California Riding and Hiking trail. Preregistration is required to go on the hike. Call 760-367-5502. Directions to the trail will be provided at time of registration.
