[ARCHIVED] Join In on the Walk 5 Challenge and Walk 10,000 Steps

TRAILS Walk 5 Challenge image

Trails provide several community benefits, from connecting to various destinations provides people with multiple options for getting around the city, increasing levels of physical activity, and can reduce motor vehicle trips, which improves air pollution and reduce individual carbon footprints. 

The City of Lake Stevens has about 5 miles of trails, most located in our city and community parks, including nearly 2 miles of Centennial Trail.  That’s about 10,000 steps!

Challenge yourself, your family, and friends to explore the natural beauty and abundant opportunities for outdoor adventures that Lake Stevens has to offer with the Walk 5 Challenge! Visit this post and our social media posts on Mondays August 9 – September 27, 2021, for our Walk in The Park series.  We are saying goodbye to summer and welcoming autumn getting you out of the house and into the parks.   

We invite the community to visit a Lake Stevens walking trail each week and share a photo with the hashtag #WalkInTheParkLS. Every Monday, we’ll share those photos of our amazing community enjoying the great outdoors on our social media outlets. By posting and using #WalkInTheParkLS, the City of Lake Stevens may use a user-submitted image on the city website, Twitter, or Facebook pages for this promotion. Photo credit is given to the user.  

Walking all the trails featured will bring you to about 10,000 steps by the end of the series.   Each week, this post will be updated with a little information about each featured trail:
