Feel the mystery of the forest. Experience nature in a new way.

Forest Bathing, translated from the Japanese Shinrin-Yoku, means immersing your senses in nature. Let us take you on a unique two and half hour eco-trip, and invite you, through a series of brief sensory activities, to open yourself to all the sights, sounds, smells and textures of an Adirondack forest.

Certified Forest Therapy Guide Suzanne Weirich will lead you on this relaxing journey, inviting you to recover from the stress of daily life. Forest Bathing is a wellness practice. Research studies have shown that it can lower blood pressure and levels of the stress hormone cortisol, as well as improve our immune system’s ability to fight infection and cancer.  Find more information about Forest Bathing at adirondackriverwalking.com.

Please come prepared for a modest walk in the woods. The walk will begin from The Wild Center parking area, where you will shuttle to the trailhead about five minutes away. This trip runs rain or shine; if weather poses a safety issue, tickets will be refunded.

Forest Bathing is offered on the following dates: May 11, July 20, August 3rd, August 17th, September 1st, and October 14th
