Nature Trails

So much good can be done for your health and personal wellbeing by just getting outside. A large focus of our practice is encouraging outdoor activity and taking the stigma of a gym membership or a treadmill away from the word “exercise.” A workout can happen any time, whether it’s a round of golf, a walk down the street or just taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

Andover has a huge offering of free, public walking trails both with AVIS and the Andover Trails Committee. A comprehensive (and, in the case of AVIS, interactive) map of all of these trails can be found at the following websites.
