With the spring weather in full bloom, it's time get off the treadmill and take your fitness routine outdoors.
For inspiration, you can turn to the book "Walking Salt Lake City" (Wilderness Press, $17.95), co-authored by Lynn Arave of Layton and Ray Boren of Salt Lake City. There are 34 walks outlined in the book, from Dimple Dell in Sandy on the south, to Antelope Island on the north.
Each walk has a map, degree of difficulty, clear route directions, background about the location and points of interest to see along the way.
Walking gives you a chance to soak in all of the little tidbits and architecture that you miss when you drive through a neighborhood, Arave said in an interview.
