Breathe in. Breathe out. Unplug. There has never been a better time to step away from what seems like an endless supply of screens and take time to improve your mental and physical health. There are plenty of workouts taking social media by storm, although now even many of those involve screens and other technology, but doctors suggest what some would call the world’s oldest form of exercise, a hike. It’s no wonder the developers of Tributary in Nassau County expect the community’s trail system to be its top amenity.

While many people love hiking for the enjoyment of it, there is no denying that your typical stroll through the woods can not only improve your physical well-being but your mental health as well. Researchers at the University of British Columbia found that using hiking as an aerobic exercise can improve memory and cognitive ability along with relieving a tremendous amount of stress. According to WebMD, more and more doctors are writing “nature prescriptions” or “ecotherapy” for stress related illnesses. Hiking has also been found to help individuals improve their focus and sharpen their problem-solving skills.

Like many other aspects of our lives, convenience plays a major factor in an individual’s actions, maybe none more so than physical and mental training. Living close to hiking trails and parks would give those residents an advantage compared to those living in a busy cityscape. Luckily for Northeast Florida and Nassau County, the new master-planned community Tributary will be the ideal location to unwind and unplug.

At Tributary, every day will be the perfect day to get outside and hit the trail! There is a fierce commitment to connect people to the outdoors and provide the health and wellness benefits that come with living in a walkable community. The natural paradise within Tributary will provide residents the chance to immerse themselves in the amazing scenery as they meander their way through the many hiking and biking trails, community green spaces and pocket parks currently being developed. Masterfully planned and constructed by Avid Trails, they come with a promise: “We personally design our trails to capitalize on the unique features within each community, it’s the perfect place for people to get outside, have fun, and be happy.”

Along with the hidden mental health benefits of outdoor activities, there are plenty of obvious physical health benefits. Hiking trails or uneven terrain has been found to use 28 percent more energy than walking on flat ground. On average, a moderate hike can burn 300-400 calories per hour. Of course, that number can easily be skewed depending on a variety of factors like length and speed of the hike. But there is no denying that your physical health will improve when you hit the trails.

Tributary will span over 1,500 acres and feature trail systems connecting each neighborhood and the trailheads of Four Creeks State Forest and Tributary Regional Park. Residents will truly enjoy a life dedicated to our mantra “Explore More”. This new community offers over 30 single-family modern-rustic home designs, priced from the $200s. Renowned builders Dream Finders Homes, Lennar and Richmond American Homes are currently constructing models to be featured within the community’s Model Home Village. Sales have already begun, and tours of the completed Model Home Village are projected to begin in Spring 2021.
