If your doctor recommends daily exercise, try new things. If you are feeling adventurous, you should try hiking. Hiking is a great form of exercise because the fresh air enables you to think clearly, and to be stress free; which is not only good for your physical health, but it is also good for your mental health.

In Manassas, there is different hiking trails that you can explore. The nearest trails around here are the Bull Run Occoquan Trail, the Bull Run Mountains, and the Manassas National Battlefield Park. The Occoquan Trail has a beautiful sight of the Occoquan River and it is 7.8 miles long. You can find a nice 5 mile trail at The Bull Run Mountains, and there is a run down historic that is a must see. The last trial, at the Manassas BattleField Park is a 8.6 mile trail that has a stone house and canyons spread around the park. All of these hiking trails are beautiful historic sites that you should checkout.

Although Hiking is great, you should also keep in mind that your feet need to be protected from the uneven terrain to prevent injuring your foot. To prevent injury consider getting hiking shoes or at least a shoe with a thick sole, and remember if you ever have a foot injury come to Bull Run Foot and Ankle Clinic to get treated.
