More about the Y on the Move Hikes and the Y on the Move program:
The YMCA offers a series of hikes and information sessions to help people connect to each other and to explore the local trails. Our goal is that people become more comfortable on the local trails and that they meet new people.

The Y on the Move program hosts indoor and outdoor community-based pop-up activities that promote active living. This program is supported by The Aberdeen Health Foundation.
