The monthly hike, led by the Ministry of Health and Wellness in collaboration with the National Task Force on Wellness, comes off this Saturday, August 17, starting at Bath Beach, St. John.
The hike, which moves off at 3:30 p.m., will cover four miles and is expected to take about two hours. It will proceed from Bath Beach up to the site of the former Cable and Wireless Earth Satellite Station via horse trails.
It will then travel uphill into Welch Town and enter a jungle behind the housing area. The jungle trails will lead to the road next to Pothouse Spring and the hike will continue into Newcastle. Hikers will then return to the coast following the Great Train Line route through Congor Bay and return to Bath Beach.
This hike is suitable for both children and adults. Participants are reminded to bring drinking water and a snack. Recommended attire is comfortable, enclosed shoes, a hat, long pants and long-sleeved shirts. Sunscreen and sunglasses are advised. The hikes, held under the theme: Barbados Moves! Let’s Get Moving! are free events.
