Hiking doesn’t have to happen up a mountain; it can happen almost anywhere!  From a city park or public garden to a mountain trail or reservoir loop, just being active outdoors gives you that dose of nature that everyone needs to maintain their physical and mental wellness.  

Use this #HypeYourHike Social Media Toolkit to engage your community and find out how they hike.  Connecticut’s parks, preserves, open spaces, and neighborhood trails offer so many opportunities to get outdoors for some exercise while enjoying the wonders of nature up close.  Ask your residents to post photos of their favorite local hiking spots, recommend locations, and #HypeYourHike

This toolkit provides graphics, statistics, and suggested social media messages for you to use, but feel free to create your own content as well!  Just make sure to use our hashtag so we can follow all of the great hiking adventures shared by your community members.
