ABOUT THE PROGRAM
About the Hikes: (Led by Tahilia Rebello)
Our Saturday hike takes us through the famous Appalachian Trail that runs all the way from Maine to Delaware! But, not to worry, we are going to explore only 4 miles of this beautiful nature trail. This hike will take us through some gorgeous wooded terrain filled with Maple, Oak and Birch trees, and up to a beautiful vista at the summit known as Pulpit Point. Fingers crossed that the Fall colors will still be there to greet us! This is a moderate hike, with a decent uphill climb, but we will take ample breaks to breathe in nature, and to learn a little about the plants, trees and terrain. After we reach the summit, which provides a great view of the surrounding nature and towns, we may take some time at the top to meditate as a group. There’s even an amateur observatory at the top that we can check out before heading back down! This is a beautiful short hike to invigorate ourselves and to take in some beautiful scenery.
On Sunday, we will complete a 3 mile, meditative and replenishing nature walk in the Blue Marsh Lake Trail System, located only about 25 minutes away from Lakeside Manor. This relaxing, easy loop hike is mostly flat and follows the edge of a serene lake. It is brimming with incredible fauna and there are some beautiful bird species in this nature reserve, so hopefully we will see some Woodpeckers, Cardinals or Blue Jays! At the half-way point, we will take a short path out to the lakeside to take a moment to appreciate nature and meditate, before looping back towards our start point. The hike back is stunning, with great views of the nearby hills and is filled with natural beauty! This is a very relaxing hike which will leave us with plenty of energy for the day ahead!
