Forest Therapy Trail at Hundred Acre Farm

The Hundred Acre Farm at Farmhouse Inn offers a secluded sanctuary of gardens, orchards, and beautiful scenery, along with the first certified Forest Therapy Trail in the United States!

 

Forest therapy may be a new concept to some, but its benefits are evident to all. Be it physical, mental, or emotional improvement, the goal of forest therapy is to center participants in the most vibrant forms of wellness and healing, all while engaging in low-intensity activity and soaking in the beauty that nature has to offer. Forest therapy is inspired by the Japanese practice of Shinrin-Yoku, which translates to “forest bathing.”

 

At Hundred Acre Farm, the Forest Therapy Trail is available to all adults and older teens. For $5 per person (a fee that is waived for Farmhouse Inn guests), visitors can enjoy the serenity of a steady, self-guided walk down gorgeous trails as they connect with their surroundings. Walk for an hour or walk for four – enjoy the experience for as long as you choose.

There are several options available to enjoy the Trail. The Self-Guided Walk is $5.00 per person for 2 hours (fee waived for guests at The Farmhouse Inn). A brochure is provided to help you get the most benefit from your walk.
