Guided Forest Therapy

Research shows that visits to natural places have benefits to our overall health. Experience the healing and wellness of Shinrin-Yoku: the practice of bathing the senses in nature. Learn the basics on a quiet, contemplative walk that integrates gratitude, reflection and creativity. Note: Instructor will notify participants of location prior to class. Registration closes at 5pm the day before the event.

Come prepared with appropriate clothing layers for the weather and water. Bring a towel or pad to sit on if you wish.

Local Day Hikes

Local hikes are easy to moderate with minimal elevation gain and up to 5 miles at a 1-1.5 mile and hour pace. Most residents would agree, Castle Rock has some of the most beautiful trails and open space in Colorado. With 95 miles of trails and just under 6,000 acres of open space that define the region’s most prominent features, you never know what kind of adventure will be waiting for you. 

Wellness Walks

Walk the hard surface paths in Castle Rock and get a tour at the same time! This is perfect for those who want some fresh air, and to gain a little knowledge of the Town of Castle Rock. Each week will cover a different section of town. These are mostly flat walks, up to 4 miles round trip. 

Wednesdays at 10 a.m.; three walks thru the last week of April 2021.
