Mount Desert Island Hospital’s Fall Walking Series is now underway and participants are enjoying the many benefits of walking. The group, which is sponsored by MDI Hospital Wellness Programs, meets every Monday and Friday morning at 9 a.m. in various locations throughout Acadia National Park through Oct. 28.
