Outdoor Fitness Equipment

Our three fitness stations around the Lake Estes Trail provide a "training circuit" for people of all ages. The fitness stations are self-paced and free to use. Each station is equipped with instructions that guide you through a series of stretches, resistance training, balance and cardiovascular exercises. Exercise routines are designed for various levels of fitness and abilities.

If you and your family currently stroll, powerwalk, jog, or bike around the Lake Estes Trail, use the fitness stations to enhance your trail experience, your outdoor workout, and to provide your family with a free, healthy group activity.
