The cozy and colorful days of fall have arrived. As the seasons move, shouldn’t you, too? A fit lifestyle not only helps you stay at a healthy weight, but it’s good for your teeth. We all know sweets and fatty foods can lead to weight gain, heart disease, diabetes and other illnesses, and can cause tooth decay and gum disease. Not only should you pay attention to what you put in your mouth, but it’s also important for your overall body health that you maintain an active lifestyle. So take your first step in getting healthy and hop off that couch!
Why not get active with a scenic hike at Blue Ridge Parkway? This beautiful trail is worth visiting – especially in October when the fall leaves reach their peak color. Leaves will begin changing first on the Parkway’s highest peaks and conclude in the lower elevations.
Blue Ridge Parkway has several trails from which you can choose, ranging in difficulty level, so whether you’re a first-time hiker or an expert, you can find a trail that’s perfect for you. Meandering alongside the Parkway road, the trails provide a close-up look at some of the most breathtaking wilderness in the country.
Our beautiful state has so much to offer if you just take that first step and get outside!
