What is Walk Maryland?

Walk Maryland is a celebration of our official state exercise--walking! It's also a call to action to promote awareness about regular walking all year round for physical activity and improved health, engaging Marylanders with fun walks of all sizes and shapes.


Oct. 7th marks the 6th Annual Walk Maryland Day celebration sponsored by the Maryland Department of Health to celebrate their annual theme - "Walk Towards Wellness". All Marylanders are encouraged to "Walk Towards Wellness" by taking time on that day to participate in some type of physical activity (ex., walking). Even though Oct. 7th will be the official celebration, we want to encourage everyone to go walking all year round. The point is to get up, get out, and get active everyday! 
Join us at noon for a Covid-safe walk to celebrate our Queen Anne’s County Trails! Just under the east side of Kent Narrows Bridge (Parking lot), bring your family, friends, a buddy, or simply stop by to show your enthusiasm for our beautiful Cross Island Trail and County Connector Trails or find a new trail in our Rotary Club of Kent Island Great Outdoor Guide, while enjoying all the fresh air and healthy living that trail-walking and nature promises! Let’s show Maryland what a beautiful and walk-friendly place we are!
