Celebrate Monday of Visit Indiana Week with the Bedford Hiking Club. The theme for today is GET MOVING.

Starting in 1987, the members of the Bedford Hiking Club have maintained their dedication to GET MOVING. Meeting almost every Monday, with a few other events here and there, the group travels around Lawrence County and beyond in order to enjoy nature and stay fit.

This Monday, the club is planning to take an approximately 1.5 hour hike along a little trail that some people may have never seen. Meet them at the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence County on the west side by the Armory. From there, you will be walking along a pretty trail that leads to the Milwaukee Trail.

Everyone is invited and encouraged to join the Bedford Hiking Club.

Get out and GET MOVING! #HoosIN #GetMovingMonday
