These are not specific trails but the types of walks to explore as you begin to build strength and stamina for more difficult routes.

10 hikes for novice hikers
Preview

    1. Rail trails

    Well groomed and relatively flat

    2. Canalway towpaths

    3. Walk your local shopping mall.

    Climate controlled and not weather dependent.

    4. Boardwalks

    Usually found in coastal areas but other riverine systems have them as well

    5. The local school track

    I usually find this boring but it is a defined distance where you can measure your pace, stride, time, etc. And there is usually one close by.

    6. Town / County park

    Most will have a groomed loop trail with convenient parking and public transportation.

    7. Greenways

    Do a search for your locale. 

    8. Linear parks

    Another term to search for. Could include several of the ideas above.

    9. The beach

    Can be more difficult than those listed above.Your best bet on most ocean beaches will be near low tide.

    10. Bridges

    Many large bridges include a pedestrian walkway. Usually well maintained, minimal gradient, if any, and often good sightseeing.
