Treks starts off with a familiarity session on how to lead a Llama or Alpaca at the barn. Following the familiarity session, we venture onto the trail. There are over 10 kms of trails and we choose a suitable route depending on the season and weather. We have a special groomed route for winter. Treks are recommended for ages 12 and up. Following the trek you get the opportunity to meet the rest of the llamas, alpacas feed them and meet the mules, and sheep. We have only seen smiles from all who have taken a trek. Llamas have a special quality of bringing a calming effect on trekkers. You will enjoy a wilderness hike on our private trails that the public does not have access to. There are many other animals and birds that you may have the opportunity to view or see their tracks. The trails have lots of elevation changes, exposed rock and some dirt sections.

Hike & Yoga with a View
“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” - Eleanor Roosevelt We'll meet at the entrance of the trail and start with brief introductions, a review of the route, safety briefing - and pause to set an intention for the hike. Our trek begins on a wide relatively flat trail, then up along short climb to the crossroads. The trail delves deeper into the forest as it winds its way along the ridge until we reach the deck overlooking the Georgian Peaks Ski Club, showcasing panoramic views of Georgian Bay. On the deck facing our big blue bay, I'll lead a beginner-friendly yoga session to connect our mind, body and spirit with the land and the lake (AKA Spirit Lake by Ojibway Indians). Afterwards, we'll have time to relax and enjoy the scenery at the summit, spending approximately 1 hour at the lookout. Then we'll continue our hike and loop back through the forest to our car. Throughout the hike, we'll take water breaks and pause for mindful moments... forest bathing. You'll leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated ahhh... NOTE: No washroom facilities available in or near the park And... If you don't see a date or time on the calendar that works for you or have a larger group, please contact me to check on availability and possible options. Happy to chat!

Forest therapy session with skilled guide
Join me on a guided Forest Therapy excursion to experience the healing power of nature. We'll journey together into the senses to connect with each other and the natural world that is all around us. Forest Therapy is a nature connection practice that aims to enhance well-being, relieve stress, and encourage relaxation. It is a gentle, physically undemanding experience that takes place in an area of forest or along a forest trail. It is a therapeutic practice that guides you to an inner state of relaxation through a series of invitations that bring you into present moment relationship with the forest. Through guided journeys, mindfulness practices, and sensory awareness invitations, I support you to access the healing of the land. The benefits of Forest Therapy are primarily attributed to the interaction and relationship between the participant and the forest environment. There are many health benefits including: reduced stress levels and blood pressure, boosting immune systems, improving mental health, and enhancing brain power and creativity. Sessions are done at a relaxed pace and are open to all.
You will be greeted by alpacas, goats, bunnies, chickens, ducks, sheep, pigs and horses! Watch the alpacas graze, sit with them and watch them and their funny antics! We can walk with them, feed them and even spray them down in their kiddie pools if the weather is hot. You will learn about alpacas and their different personalities and traits! We are in the country and not accessible by public transportation. We are approximately 1 hour from Toronto. Please plan your trip accordingly :)
