On Tuesday, July 11, 2023 Hannibal Regional celebrated the grand opening of the Healthy Way Fitness Trail Expansion, the new Healthy Way Nature Trail. Located on the west side of the medical campus, next to the Emergency Department parking lot, the newest addition to the trail adds just under a half mile to the existing path that winds through the rest of campus. Thanks to a new partnership with the Mississippi Hills Missouri Master Naturalists, the nature trail will include areas of native plants and prairies. The paved path winds around a pond and through a wooded area, has lights throughout and is free to use by all community members. Future plans for the trail include a large covered pavilion, picnic benches and park benches to be spread out along the trail.
