Explore Washington State Parks

Explore Washington State Parks virtually. In this challenge you ‘visit’ 25 Washington State parks. Use the Washinton State Parks spreadsheet to convert your activities to miles and learn more about each park. It will take 8 miles of activity to get to the next park, and are listed alphabetically by park name. Your first park will be Alta Lake in Okanogan County, and you’ll finish in Wallace Falls in Snohomish County. If you visit all 25 parks by September 30, 2018, you’ll earn 400 points. 

You can track your activity or your steps! The spreadsheet will convert your activity to steps and for every 8 miles you’ll ‘explore’ a new park, you’ll see a picture and read some information on that park. Once you have virtually visited all 25 parks, return to SmartHealth and say, “I did this” to claim your points. (400 points!!)

And now that you are familiar with all the great parks that Washington State has to offer! Go check out some of them in person. Then you may be able to complete the Take a Hike activity too!

Points:  400 one time (July 1, 2018 – September 30, 2018) – Track 200 miles.
