Walking Trails

A simple environmental change may help a community move more.  Eastern Shore Healthy Communities awarded mini-grants to five towns and in Onley, the Eastern Shore Family YMCA for signage to mark walking trails.  Signs have been installed and we’re awaiting results of the increased walking.  Towns include:

  • Cape Charles
  • Eastville
  • Melfa
  • Nassawadox
  • Onancock
  • Onley – YMCA
  • Wachapreague

No Limits Eastern Shore (NLES) has partnered with Eastern Shore Healthy Communities (ESHC) to evaluate and promote walking trails on the Eastern Shore.
