Contemplative Day-Hike

The second Sunday of the month (normally), meeting at 9am

Each month, we connect with the sacred in the forest, on the mountain, at the water--after all, God is in all places already. 

We walk, we talk, we also walk without talking. And we sit. In silence. And we are grounded.

Would you come with us?

The Route

Sugarloaf and Townsend Hill

In February, we agreed to return to the Veitch Creek area for each of our hikes over the course of a year. So we return in March! We'll likely take a slightly different route, but likely still head up Sugarloaf.
