Alt talks about family hiking
MAUMEE - Jeff Alt, family hiking expert and inspiration to the annual Sunshine Walk, 5k Run & Roll, will provide tips on hiking with kids and sign his new book, "Get Your Kids Hiking: How to Start Them Young and Keep it Fun," at two events this month.
Alt will be at the Learning Express, in the Shops at Fallen Timbers Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. He will also be at Walt Churchill's Market on Briarfield Boulevard July 19 from 4 to 6 p.m.
Meet Sunny the Bear, the official Mascot of the Sunshine Walk, 5k Run & Roll. Learn the Alt family's "Take a Hike" song and dance and hear about walking activities.
Here are some of Alt's tips to get moving:
• Start them young. Ergonomically designed baby carriers make it easy and fun to carry infants and toddlers with you wherever you hike.
• Let the kids lead. Hike at your child's pace and distance. Whatever your child takes interest in, stop and explore that bug, leaf or rock with them.
• Bring water and food kids love. Hand out needed extra energy and water as needed on the trail.
Alt is an avid hiker. In addition to walking the 2,160-mile Appalachian Trail for Sunshine, he also walked the 218-mile John Muir Trail.
