What you'll do

A truly one of a kind scenic hike in Santa Cruz County. This trail is incredibly peaceful and uncrowded. Transportation provided if needed. FIVE TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EXPERIENCE 1. CONNECTION TO EARTH I'll lead you through a guided meditative hike then crawl into the most amazing natural tree fort! We'll stop a few times to take photos and embrace the beautiful surroundings. Otherwise, this is a "no technology" hike, I ask that you please be respectful of this rule and be mindful of others around you if you need to use a phone. 2. CONNECTION TO BODY We'll be doing a 2-mile loop along the sea cliff then down to a beach. Prepare to do a few mobility warm-up exercises to ready our bodies for the movement ahead. 3. CONNECTION TO BREATH We will do an optional 15-minute Wim Hof breathwork exercise, in which we will be taking very deep connective breaths in increments of 40 seconds. In the tree fort. 4. CONNECTION TO ANOTHER We'll have a picnic on the beach! Food and drinks will provide based on āyurveda principles and a group activity. 5. CONNECTION TO SELF- JOURNALING We'll capture our thoughts, sketches, and reflections in a notebook

Where you'll be

Wilder Ridge Loop Trail is truly a hidden gem, it's a gorgeous, cliffside trail with a hidden path down to a secluded beach. We'll hike down to the beach for our picnic, breath work, and journaling exercise. All in all, it is a pretty flat trail so most people with a moderate level of fitness will be able to do it.

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 2 guests ages 10 and up can attend. Parents may also bring children under 2 years of age. Guests should wear comfortable shoes and socks as we will be hiking rough terrain.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

This hike isn't strenuous, however, be prepared for mud, elevation change, cold weather, bugs, and sun. I will provide bug spray, please bring a reusable bottle to reduce plastic.
