Walking Trails


No Limits Eastern Shore (NLES) partnered with Eastern Shore Healthy Communities (ESHC) to evaluate and promote walking trails on the Eastern Shore.  ESHC is a coalition that was established in 2009 in order to organize a group of partners dedicated to creating a healthier Eastern Shore.  Through this coalition, mini-grants were awarded to 7 towns funding the placement of signage along pre-established walking areas/trails encouraging physical activity.

To view more information on these 8 walking areas/trails as well as view the maps of where they are located please view Eight Easy Walks of the Shore, a document prepared by Walkability Work Group of ESHC in 2016.
