Route 1: Activity 1

Route 1 is on rugged, non-paved trails and takes about 60 minutes to complete, but you can take as much time as you need to move through the activities. This tour requires extensive walking on unpaved trails and is best if you have a full hour.

Activity 1: Moment to Arrive Mindfulness

This is a good practice in any situation. Take a moment before beginning the trail to regulate your breath and transition from what you were doing before to come into the present moment.

As your breathing evens out, feel your feet rooted to the ground and imagine drawing energy up through the earth into your body and out the crown of your head. This imagery helps to connect you to the place you are and to the present moment. Before you set out on your walk, take a moment to acknowledge that you are entering a natural space and set an intention to share the space with all the other living things that you will encounter.
