Pointing the way

Furman Park Health Trail start

Some day, Furman Park is going to have a new state-of-the-art walking path instead of a dirt path that sometimes turns muddy. But for now, just in time for Walking Wednesdays with the Mayor, new signs along the Health Trail point the way to better health through regular exercise.

Furman Park Health Trail turn 1This first new sign (above), with its aerial view of the Health Trail, answers a question that has long been on my mind. It turns out that it takes two trips around the park to walk a mile (or 1.1 miles to be precise).

At right, the yellow sign (along with several others at key points) answers a question that I don't think I've ever asked—do I need to turn here to stay on the path? I guess it's a helpful sign to those who are new to the park.
