“Into the woods I go, to lose my mind and find my soul…” John Muir
Please join us on a gentle journey hike focused on “forest bathing” in the blue oak woodlands and grasslands of enchanting Deer Creek Hills Preserve. We will be quietly exploring Nature and forest bathing through mindfulness, yoga, and meditation by inviting participants in group/solo activities and observations during the walk about.
The hike will be about 2 to 3 miles long and take around 4 to 5 hours. Bring layered comfortable loose clothing, hiking shoes, hat, a ground cloth (for damp ground), second hand yoga mat, daypack, water, snack/lunch, hand towel, and sunscreen. A journal is suggested.
The road to access Deer Creek Hills is not paved. 4WD, higher clearance vehicles are recommended, but not required.
All events are subject to weather conditions. If there is rain projected, event will likely be canceled. Registered guests will be notified by Thursday evenings and the event will be labeled as canceled on the website.
Smoking is prohibited on the preserve.
No dogs allowed, except working service dogs.
