Local Roots has always focused on being a health-centered anchor of this community. What we consume is an essential part of the foundation for a happy, healthy and productive life, which is why we work to keep our food offerings simple: fresh, minimally processed, and made with ingredients everyone can understand. By our nature, we are always striving to take better care of our community, and that effort extends beyond selling you food.  We are a Co-Op.


In February and March of 2021, we branched out our marketing efforts and took time to focus on our community's healthy options beyond Local Roots. One of these efforts was the Wayne Winter Hiking Challenge!

Challenge Details:

This challenge is a great way to get rewarded for staying active and finding moments of rejuvenation in nature during the cold winter months! The challenge is for hikers of all ages and levels. Nature is for EVERYBODY! Make it your own hike, go at your own pace.

We have put together a brochure listing 8 different parks in or near Wayne County. Hikers must visit 6 of the 8 parks between January 15th and March 11th, 2024 to complete the challenge. This brochure is available for download and print below, or for pickup at the checkout counter at Local Roots. Challenge finishers can fill out their brochure and drop it off at Local Roots when they are done. They will then receive a $10 gift card to Local Roots per household and a specialty challenge sticker per hiker. By completing the hiking challenge hikers are also automatically entered into the drawing for a Wayne Winter Hiking Challenge Raffle! Additionally, on the back of the Hiking form are bonus activities. Each bonus activity completed adds an additional entry to the raffle. Keep an eye out for updates on the raffle prize!

We would love to hike along with you, so on social media use the tag #WayneWinterHiking so we can follow along! Every Friday of the challenge on social media we will share some snapshots of our hikes, highlighting one of each of the 8 parks every week.

If you have any questions on the challenge, feel free to reach out to Happy Hiking, we'll see you on the trail!
