On Saturday, October 14,  we will meet in front of the Carpenter Recreation Center, located at 11151 Colorado Blvd.  This month's walk will take us around Carpenter Park and then will head southwest to do one loop around Lambertson Lakes Park.  This course can range in distance from 2 to 7.1 miles; everyone should go at their own pace.   We will depart promptly at 9 a.m. so please don't be late.  This trail is mostly paved and has a few hills.  Please remember to dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.  If you are interested in participating in the program but can't come on October 14, please make sure we have your e-mail address and we will keep you apprised of the dates, locations and distances for upcoming walks.  Please send those inquiries to   The November event will be held on Saturday, November 11.


The "Discover Thornton" Community Walk program is intended to help you develop or maintain a consistent fitness program.  City of Thornton Recreation Staff will lead the walk each month.  These treks will be of varying distances and will explore the many different trails around the county.  Come alone or bring your spouse, your neighbors, your children and/or your dog.  This is an opportunity to pursue your fitness goals, meet some new people and enjoy the trails of Thornton.  These walks are free and open to anyone who can physically complete the distance.  These are "no frills" events, so bring what you will need (water bottle, pet pick-up bags, etc.)  for the duration of each month's walk.
