We all know that biking, hiking, and other forms of outdoor recreation are good for our health. A National
Park Service (NPS) study found that people who exercise regularly spend 30 percent fewer days in the
hospital than people who do not. But did you know that biking and hiking are also good for the health of
our national parks?
Bicycling, hiking, and walking are effective and pleasurable alternatives to motor vehicle travel. NPS is
exploring the use of these and other transportation alternatives to accommodate more park visitors while
alleviating congestion, protecting park resources, and improving the visitor experience.
