APPLETON - Walking not only makes you physically active but it can make you smarter too.

The United Way created a walking trail in Pierce Park to get children outside and learn.

Walkers can find letters, numbers and shapes painted on the sidewalk.

Suzanne Brault-Pagel from the United Way Fox Cities says, "it's a unique opportunity for children, caretakers, and parents to interact and develop those early literacy skills that are so important for a child before they enter kindergarten."

The city of Appleton and Miller Electric also helped out with the trail.
