If you live in Tri-Cities, chances are you're an outdoors person. Sitting around and watching TV is fun when you're tired but that's not how folks here spend every waking moment. They want to go out, they want to get their adrenaline pumping. It's great exercise and it's good for your heart health and blood pressure.

Tri-Cities has lots of trails to choose from.

We have plenty of trails whether you're looking to take it easy or give yourself a more challenging workout. Chamna Natural Preserve is very underrated, featuring trails and wildlife. Of course, there are several flat and paved trails in various parks like Sacejewea, Columbia Park (check out Audobon Trail), Leslie Groves, and Howard Amon. If you're feeling up to it, Badger Mountain features more than ten trails of varying difficulty with Skyline trail being the longest at over three miles long. With Bateman Island open again, there are even more trails if you can find yourself a boat. Not far from Horse Heaven Hills Park is Freedom Trail which offers some nice dirt to dig your wheels into. If you're looking for a challenge, Johnson Butte has all the incline you could ask for in a 4.6-mile roundtrip.

The best trails have the best views.

When it comes to scenery, nothing can top Jump-Off Joe. The views of the Tri-Cities makes the occasional rattlesnake encounter worth it. Just be mindful of those fangs and be sure to keep on the trail as the wind turbines are on private property. The trail itself is not overly difficult with just over two miles of distance.
