About the VSU Walking Trail System

The VSU Walking Trail System is a joint collaboration between Blazer Wellness and USG. The scenic route offers current and historical facts about various buildings and artworks at VSU. The fitness route maps a 1.35-mile path around the campus. Our goal is to engage the VSU community by providing opportunities to learn about the campus. VSU is rich with history, art, and beautiful scenery. Walk through our campus and tour the many different things that we have to offer.

North Campus Walking Trail

This 0.45 mile trail is available for our community to enjoy thanks to the efforts of a University System of Georgia Well-Being initiative in collaboration with The VSU Center for Exercise Medicine and Rehabilitation and Blazer Wellness. A healthy activity target is to walk for 150 minutes per week. Walking one lap will add 10 minutes towards this weekly target. Found along North Campus will be 14 poll signs directing the walk path for individuals walking around the Thaxton, Pound and the Health Sciences and Business Administration buildings. This walk path will be available in Fall 2022.
