This is an easy system of well-maintained trails with a great variety of trees. Hiking the main trails would take around an hour so this location is great for mindfulness walks with a mix of forest therapy.
Location: At the beginning of Vandam Road, right off Route 9. (Parking behind the florist at 4204 Route 9, Hyde Park, NY) There are other points of access with parking but this is the one we use.
We will be walking the blue and probably red trails slowly with several stops for sharing and forest therapy work.
Cost is $25. If you are not able to afford the fee please come and pay what you can. If you can afford it, the fee helps support this service and allows me to be flexible with those who need the help.
This is the first time using this location for forest therapy but I estimate the event will take 2.5 hours.
All participants must sign a simple liability waiver at the start of the event to allow us peace of mind in offering our walks to the public.
