Developed by The Institute for Earth Education for a small group of 8 to 12 travelers, the Muir Trek is a day of wandering through a wild place from sunrise to sunset, taking only curiosity for life’s adventures, and openness to what the earth will offer as it turns towards the sun, and a bit of food and water for nourishment. Cares and worries, phones and watches, are all left behind.
Inspired by explorer and Sierra Club founder John Muir’s personal qualities of zest, celebration, joy, and adventure, the trek will move deliberately through the day, seeking natural world’s richness rather than its challenges. The only destination will be the disappearance of the sun beyond the horizon. The day will be accented with leader inputs intended to help you explore your own experiences in nature. There will be time to saunter over short distances, sit, watch, and reflect on the natural community around you.
The focus of this event is the day long trek on Day 2 however due to the very early start time participants are advised to arrive and camp the night beforehand. This first evening kicks off with a supper at 7pm and then a pre-trek meeting at 8pm and an evening viewing party.

As if we didn’t know it already, recent research has confirmed that a separation from the natural world leads to a diminished existence. Case-studies prove that restoring this connection leads to immediate and beneficial results, on all levels, including mind, body and spirit.
Bottom line is – people flourish in connection to nature. You only have to glance at WildWise’s testimonials to understand the value of this connection.
We see it all the time. We want you to.
