I ran across it online
Any distance is enjoyable, but my preference would be for a 3-5 mile walk in a natural area.
Any is fine.
Late afternoon or evening on weekdays, or any time after mid-morning on weekends.
Weekends are best.
I was an avid hiker while growing up in upstate New York, and also spent a lot of time walking in the woods. I haven't done much of either since moving to Kalamazoo, where I teach ecology and other biology courses at WMU.
