Onsite Activities 2019-01-29T19:45:08+00:00

We are proud to offer the following activities on-site and throughout the property:

Hikes:

                                                       Waterfall ~10-15 minutes

This hike will lead you down through the lower fields and the arroyo, rich with bio-diverse vegetation, a variety of birds, beaver ponds, and lots of wild mint at the top of the waterfall.

Wetlands Restoration Project  ~45 – 1 hour

This hike will take you through our educational walk that highlights the many land and water restoration projects that have been completed over the last several years. From creating wetland ponds sourced from the many springs on the property, erosion control terraced gardens, to the restoration work done on Sweetwater Creek that transformed a small dilapidated stream into a meandering creek with pools, spillways and incredible rock work. The trail also takes you along the beaver ponds and through the various native tree, shrub and seeding which boasts over 7,000 plants and 3,000 pounds of native seed.

Sand Creek/Sweetwater Confluence ~3.5 – 4.5 hours 

This hike continues past the waterfall on the property and follows a horse trail that leads you through the beginnings of the Grand Staircase National Monument. You continue the walk along the top of a ravine through multi-colored slick rock. The trail takes you past a monolithic hoodoo and then over slick rock trail until you hit the confluence of the two creeks, surrounded by Ponderosa pine trees in slick rock canyons. It’s a very picturesque place to dip into the creek and soak your toes in the crisp clean water coming directly off Boulder Mountain.

We are proud to offer medicinal and edible plant identification guidebooks for your own perusal, as well as bird guides for all the abundant wildlife on the property.
