Wellness Walking Programs

Passport to Family Wellness

Onondaga County Parks and Wegmans invite you to explore a world of opportunities for outdoor activity and personal wellness.

As part of Wegmans commitment to help local residents improve their lives through health and wellness activities they created the popular Eat Well, Live Well Passport to Family Wellness program.

The "Passports" offer a fun "out of the box" idea—designed to encourage exploration of local park trails. The pocket-sized trail "passport" includes easy-to-read maps, trail descriptions and a space to make a trail marker rubbing. 
As you hike the trails, you will find a trail marker on a post approximately halfway along.
