Walk 100 Miles
Beaver Lake Nature Center welcomes visitors to sign up for our popular walking program that rewards the completion of walking 100, 200, 300 or 1,000 miles. This ongoing program helps motivate walkers to get out into the peaceful woods to reach exercise or stress-relief goals. After registering, participants receive a logbook in which to stamp the date after each walk and keep track of mileage covered. There is no time limit, as Walk 100 Miles is an ongoing program. Upon completing a goal, walkers will be rewarded with a commemorative T-shirt, with a different design for each of the four goals. There is a $5 program fee.
Beaver Lake Nature Center is an Onondaga County Park located at 8477 East Mud Lake Road, four miles west of Baldwinsville off Route 370.
