One local Memorial Day activity includes getting out and enjoying nature.  The Jefferson County Wellness Action Coalition is putting a walking and biking event called “Hit the Trails” on Monday.  There will be organized hikes on the Jefferson County Trails starting at 10 a.m.  The event offers different types of hikes as well, including leisure and picnic hikes, photography hikes, and fitness trail runs.

Wellness Action Coalition Ken Daley says “Hit the Trails” is a great way for the whole family to get out, enjoy some exercise and fresh air on the Jefferson County trail system.  The first fitness run is at 6:20 Monday morning, and the leisure hike starts at 10 and is expected to last until 5 p.m.  For more information, contact the Jefferson County Wellness Action Coalition.
