Research demonstrates that outdoor exercise, such as hiking, offers health and well-being benefits. Join us outside the Brushwood Center for a nature meditation followed by a two mile hike. Please arrive no later than 2:00 pm, wear comfortable hiking or running shoes, bring a water bottle and dress for the weather. The hiking terrain is not paved and we may encounter irregular surface paths – all part of the beauty and joy of the hike!

(This hike is reserved for any male participant – those diagnosed, caregiving or bereaved)

Hike will be cancelled in the event of inclement weather.
