DESCRIPTION: Unwind and re-connect on a peaceful forest walk; guided Shinrin-yoku (‘forest bathing’) at First Landing State Park. This restorative nature-experience is all about deepening your connection with nature. Your walk begins at the trailhead where your guide will lead you on a sensory-immersive experience through a magical landscape of cypress swamps, salt marshes, a maritime forest and dunes. Your forest bathing experience will provide an antidote to stress, new ways of experiencing and appreciating the natural world, and a relaxing outing for you. Leave refreshed and excited for whatever comes your way.
