For as long as one can recall, Bays Mountain has always enjoyed a wonderful history of serving. While the Bays Mountain of decades past is much different from the way we know it today, the common thread that strings each decade and generation together is service.
Bays Mountain Park & Planetarium has always been utilized by locals throughout the region for a variety of goals, including education, recreation, and health and wellness. In partnering with Healthy Kingsport, Bays Mountain has been able to extend its mission of service to the Kingsport community in a new way. Specifically, Healthy Kingsport and its many, diverse sponsors and partners are working to promote better nutrition, physical activity, and tobacco cessation in our community.
Being a platinum partner of Healthy Kingsport, Bays Mountain Park supports the Million Mile City Challenge. The goal of this challenge is to, as a community, collectively log 1 million miles of physical activity over the course of a year. Bays Mountain is a 3,550-acre nature preserve and the largest city-owned park in the state of Tennessee. With 40 miles of trails for hiking, running, walking and mountain biking, Bays Mountain offers a variety of ways for participants to log their activity for this amazing challenge.
We are very proud to support the efforts of Healthy Kingsport, and share their dedication to creating a community that actively embraces healthy living. Bays Mountain invites you to join us as a partner in our effort to create a healthy and active community for generations to come.
