CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

On spring mornings, Cape Girardeau's parks and trails are littered with runners, walkers, and bikers.

And that's exactly how Governor Jay Nixon wants it.

He's challenging people in the state to walk, run, bike, swim, or hike a hundred miles throughout the state, including in Missouri's parks and on its trails.

It's all to promote better health and to bring more attention to Missouri's parks and trails.

The parks in Cape already see its fair share of people as the city is working to make trails more accessible.

"The city has recently added bike lanes throughout the city so we create that connectivity," said Parks and Recreation Director Julia Thompson.  "So regardless, you have these options to get on your bike and bike safely around the city or get on a trail and hike."

Saturday, June 1 is National Trails Day.  There will be a nature trail hike at the Conservation Center in Cape County Park North at 9:00 AM.
