Parks and Rec., Community Groups Invite Residents to take Free “Path to Wellness”

Pocatello

The City of Pocatello Parks and Recreation Department, Portneuf Health Trust, and the Portneuf Greenway Foundation are joining forces to help residents blaze a new trail for themselves.


This spring and summer, community members are invited to take part in the “Path to Wellness – Trail Exploration Wednesdays.” During an orientation March 29 at Pocatello City Hall, participants will learn names, locations and characteristics of the various trails around Pocatello, which trails are best suited for which activities, abilities and fitness levels, and how to best access the trails. The city’s trail and facility “experts,” City Outdoor Recreation Supervisor Lance Clark, Portneuf Health Trust Chief Executive Officer Shaun Menchaca and Portneuf Greenway President Rory Erchul, will be on hand to provide additional information and answer any other questions participants may have.  


“There are world class walking, hiking and biking trails just minutes from your door,” said John Banks, Parks and Recreation Director. “Whether you want to get to know the paved trails of the Portneuf Greenway or find out the best times to stop in at City Creek, we will get you on the path to making the most of these amenities and helping you to Play Often, and Live Better!”


The “Path to Wellness” Program is free to the public and activities will be held once a month from April through August. Each activity will take place at a different trail system and a schedule of activities is included below.
