Theodore Roosevelt along with his family and guests would take similar walks during their time at Sagamore Hill. These walks were called “Objective” walks or “Point to Point” walks. On these walks, TR and his companions, (his favorites being the children,) “would set out for a definite objective under the rule that they must not turn aside for any obstacle.”  If there was a wall in the way they would have to climb it, if there was an area covered by water they would have to wade or swim through it. These walks were supposed to be quite active and full of adventure for those who attended.
