Event Description: 

Leave the adrenaline rush of speed behind and give your senses time to absorb the wonders of nature. Called shinrin roku or forest bathing in Japan, mindful walking by others and delightful by many, Slow Foot Rambles emphasize the journey, not the destination. It is an observational and sensory walk to immerse ourselves in the ambiance of nature and connect with our surroundings.

Join volunteer CFPA Ramble Guide Cris Staubach on an easy and slow-paced walk. All are welcome to join in the fun, including singles. No dogs, please.
