One step at a time

September 9, 2006


Heart Smart Trails are generally one mile in length or less and follow a level path. Bronze medallions are embedded in the path every 1/10 of a mile, so walkers can keep track of the distance they have gone. A mile may not seem like much, but for patients recovering from heart surgery, every step counts. This Heart Smart Trail is at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, Md.
