Fancy Gap Hiking: Forest Bathing
March 4, 2021 : 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Shinrin-yoku, otherwise known as forest bathing, is the practice of totally immersing yourself in nature.
We will be walking silently to allow a fuller immersion with nature while consciously using all of our senses. The trails at the Blue Ridge Music Center are perfect for this type of activity. We will enjoy 3 miles of hiking through forests and meadows. This walk will involve hilly single-track dirt trails. The overall average pace will be 2.5 mph.
Sturdy hiking shoes are recommended. Please bring water. Below freezing temps, snow, rain or the closing of the Blue Ridge Parkway cancels the hike.
Before starting, you will receive some tips on how to get the most enjoyment from the activity so please try to arrive about 10-minutes early.
