$10 for General Admission
Please RSVP using the “Get Tickets” link above

Our monthly “Nature Effect” Tribe Hikes are a way for us to get outdoors, tune in with nature and create closer bonds with our community. Join us to walk off that second helping of Thanksgiving stuffing and pumpkin pie while we thrive together in conversation and soak up the revitalizing vibrations of Mother Nature.

The Sunset Trail is a beautiful trail in a place where you can appreciate San Diego’s version of autumn. This group adventure is not about the destination. Experience Tribe Hikes put more emphasis on the experience of The Nature Effect than the end result. We take the time to stop and smell the subtle vanilla-scent of the Jeffrey Pines in the fresh mountain air. We pause and listen to the whistle of wind. Even ponder the wisdom of the trees.

The Nature Effect is dedicated to spreading awareness of what spending time outdoors does for our well-being. Though you will be rejuvenated by a full dose of The Nature Effect with this experience, Andy will be teaching us how we can benefit from The Nature Effect every day.

:: Hike Description ::

Sunset Trail is one of the highlights of the Laguna Mountain Recreation area. You’ll have a great chance at seeing some fall colors thanks to the black oak trees visible from the trail. This is an easy trail that offers a nice variety of wooded walking, and open vistas of meadow and views to the west.

Sunset Trail’s plentiful trees give us a true “forest bathing” experience. It’s varied landscape and abundant wildlife also inspires and delights in a way that we can’t quite experience near the coast.

:: Meet Up & Carpool ::

Meet to carpool in Encinitas in the Lazy Acres Parking Lot by 10am where you can grab supplies before we hit the trails. We will gather outside the grocery store near the outdoor eating area on the east side of the main entrance (the eating area that is closer to the freeway).

It is an hour drive to the trailhead. We should arrive at the hike around 11:00am. Plan to be back to your car no later than 4:00pm.
