Fall Forest Bathing – Shinrin Yoku

October 22 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


The Sleeping Giant Park Association invites you to experience Shinrin Yoku, also known a “forest bathing”, at Sleeping Giant State Park. Shinrin Yoku, also known as Forest Bathing is a “gateway drug”; i.e. a gateway to nourishing our hearts and mind as we walk mindfully and in silence together. Nature is often seen as something outside of us, but we are Nature, in need of more green time and less screen time. Forest Bathing is an accessible and affordable way to reap the benefits of what movement, fresh air and no electronic devices have to offer.

Additional details, including registration, is forthcoming. We generally begin accepting registration one month prior to the event’s start.

This hike will cover a limited distance, and is suitable for all hiking abilities. Participants should dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable, supportive shoes. A day pack with water, sunscreen, and any other essentials is recommended.

Out of consideration for other participants, dogs are not permitted on SGPA hikes. All hikes leave from the kiosk at the park’s main entrance, unless otherwise noted.
