Neighborhood Walks 

At Luther Seminary, we're big on walking. We have a large and beautiful campus tucked away in a delightful neighborhood with plenty of routes that make for a pleasant walk.

We sent out some enthusiastic Healthy Leaders walkers to map out some of their favorite walking routes and, wearing pedometers, they found out how many steps they were able to chalk up toward their daily goal of 10,000 steps. (All routes begin and end at the Olson Campus Center.) Click on the thumbnails below for bigger, printable maps of these routes:
