Hemlock Ridge Wild Wander

May 7 @ 12:30 am - 4:30 pm

Hemlock Ridge Wild Wander!

Wander into the unknown with our Hemlock Ridge Wild Wander. Our Wild Wander allows people to experience unfamiliar territory with the comfort of a guide. Wandering in unknown areas helps increase our awareness of the natural world and its beauty by advancing our observatory senses. Being “wild” means we can also encounter the unexpected and must adapt quickly. Practice with adjusting to terrain changes, seasonal elements, and moving off-trail will better prepare you for the unknown wilderness, should you choose to journey on…
