An interactive trail to create and make memories in a forest setting
Our interactive forest trail has been inspired by the ancient practices of forest bathing, land art, and meditation. They are designed to engage adults and children alike and are the perfect way to slow down and learn how to truly embrace the healing and beauty that exists within nature.
Throughout the trail you will find different stations that encourage you to connect and create with nature. Some of the experiences you may enjoy include:
- Building a log structure
- Making a wish to the fairies
- Drumming in our forest music set
- Drawing on our outdoor chalkboards
- Exploring the smells of the forest
- Hunting for hidden fairies and elves
- Much more!!
Spending time in nature in a slow, relaxed, and mindful manner can be a valuable tool for our health and wellness. Individuals who spend more time in nature often experience:
- Enhanced immune system
- Lowered stress levels
- Peace of mind
- Focused time in our relationships
- Inspiration & Divine Guidance
We are blessed with a beautiful forest that has a unique set of qualities. Most of the plants are safe to touch. We don’t see a lot of poison ivy or poison oak so it is a beautiful safe place for children to play.
The makeup of our forest is also not a conducive environment for ticks. They could still be present, but we don’t see too many of them here. The main nuisance we experience is mosquitoes which are strongest on days right before and after rain.
We have spent much time honoring and loving not only the the plans and animals within our forest, but also all of the elemental energy that exists within it. Many visitors describe our forest as magical. There is a feeling and energy here that cannot be described in words and it is common for our guests to have emotional and spiritual experiences that have positive impacts for many years to come.
Throughout the forest there are many fairies, elves, dragons, and special creatures to find if you look really closely. Many of our guests also like to leave behind their own fairies, elves, and sparkly toys for them to play with. We encourage all of our guests to bring a small token with them to hide in the forest during their walk!
How To Visit
We find the experience is best (and also safest in the current times) when walked alone or with your immediate family or close friends. We don’t want you to feel crowded or rushed in any way. The best experience is to move slowly, to meander and explore, and to allow your creativity and thoughts to be free flowing.
Who Is Welcome
All human beings are welcome on the trail. It is designed for all ages and is a fairly easy walk. The trail is a forest floor, so it is not paved.
You MUST have an appointment to visit. This is a private property and for the safety of our family and guests we do NOT permit any guests on the trail or property who do not have an appointment. Please do not walk-in or arrive unexpectedly. If you would like to walk the trail simply send us an email at email@example.com and let us know when you would like to visit.
If you are coming with children. Please know that the trail can be tricky in some spots for strollers, so you may prefer to bring a carrier instead.
What to Bring
Our trail is in a covered forest, so dress appropriately. If you don’t spend a lot of time in forests here are a few suggestions:
- Lightweight long sleeve shirt and pants
- Closed toed shoes
- Bug Spray or clothing
- Water Bottle
- Fairy or Elf figurine, toy, or token
Sunscreen is typically not needed on the trail because it is almost entirely covered by the tree canopy.
What NOT to Bring
This forest is our home and very dear to our hearts. We love it and all the beings in it. We ask that all visitors give it the same love that we do. For that reason please leave the following at home as they are NOT permitted on our trail or property:
- Pets: We share the space with many wild animals and the smell of domestic animals on the trail can draw in some large visitors. For the safety of your pets, other visitors, and our young family we ask that you leave your pets at home.
- Alcohol: This is a safe family space. Alcohol is NOT permitted on the trail nor in the parking area.
- Cigarettes, Marijuana, Vaporizers, Recreational Drugs: Smoking and recreational drug use is strictly prohibited on the property.
- Food & Garbage: If you wish to enjoy a snack while on the trail please make sure you bring all garbage home with you. Leaving food and garbage on the trail attracts bears and hurts both our land and our family. We ask that you please respect the land as if it were your home and take everything with you when you leave.
