Labyrinth and Mediation Trail Update

With the help of one of our very dedicated volunteers, we have constructed a labyrinth at our barn.

As a reminder our turf labyrinth and part of the meditation trail remains closed to foot traffic at this time. A shortened meditation trail, with fewer stations, is still open for walking.

This closure is an effort to preserve the trails as it allows for the restoration of the trail and our labyrinth.

Grass labyrinth outside our barn.
