Walk

Bishop Ranch is an amazing place to enjoy being outside. Walking around the lake, up the Ironhorse Trail or down to City Center are all relaxing ways to discover the natural beauty and charm of San Ramon.

Benefits of Walking - Health & Convenience

Many doctors and other health professionals cite moderate physical activity, including walking, as a “magic pill” for excellent health.

Transportation Benefits: One quarter of all trips in the U.S. are 1 mile or less, and yet most of these trips are taken by car. Don’t drive, walk for short trips and leave your car in its parking space.

Safety Benefits: Walkable areas like Bishop Ranch have lower rates of traffic fatalities – for both pedestrians and motorists – compared with automobile-oriented areas.

Health Benefits: Fewer than 50% of Americans meet the minimum guidelines for moderate physical activity – walking is the easiest and most affordable way to correct this problem.

Environmental Benefits: Transportation is responsible for one third of all U.S. greenhouse gas emissions – converting short driving journeys to walking journeys is reducing this impact significantly.

Economic Benefits: The average household cost to own and operate one car in the U.S. is $9,000 per year – walkable neighborhoods allow families to own fewer cars and save money.
