Creating a Path to Good Health
There are approximately 2 miles of walking trials at the Potawot Health Village for the purpose of promoting good health and recreation. The trails are made from local rock (shale) and are bound using pine resin which was derived as a by-product of a mill. The surface is semi-impervious and does not contain petroleum products that would otherwise leach into the wetlands and eventually the groundwater. The trails were funded by the UIHS Diabetes Program as a way to encourage healthy lifestyles.
