GUIDED NATURE WALKS

Choose from one of the options below, or incorporate them all into your retreat experience. Talk to us in advance about your group’s physical preferences and abilities so that we can tailor this experience to be enjoyable for everyone.

DAYTIME WALKS

We offer two different types of ways to experience the mountain during our daytime nature walks. Choose between either an Ecology Walk or a Sensory Walk, both of which are led by trained naturalists who specialize in the local environment.

On your Ecology Walk, your group will learn about the plant and animal life local to the San Bernardino Mountains and take in the stunning geographical features in the area. With many trails on our 250 acres to choose from, your guide can lead you through a vigorous hike, a gentle walk, or something in between as you explore the natural sciences.

With a Sensory Walk, your guide will lead you through using the natural beauty of your surroundings as a tool to quiet your mind. This exploration of all five senses culminates in a scenic “nature sit” at one of our breathtaking vistas.

NIGHT WALKS

The mountain comes alive at night in a whole new way. Guided by Pali’s specially trained naturalists, your group will walk under a spectacular view of the stars, learning astronomy along the way. Find out about the nocturnal animals of the San Bernardino Mountains and the unique ecology of the mountain at after dark, and enjoy the splendid views of city lights far in the distance.

DOUBLE-SWING

Far and away the most intense activity at Pali, the giant Double Swing is a thrill for any brave enough to try it. Built for two people, the Double Swing drops riders from above its axis to start the activity with a freefall before it starts swinging. It’s much higher, much faster, and much more daring than our Triple-Swing… And no one’s ever accused our Triple-Swing of being of being too low, too slow, or insufficiently daring. Though this activity has no height requirement and allows children ages 6 and older, it’s not for everyone! The Double-Swing is a super-exciting and fun activity, but it’s only for those who love a good thrill.

PAINTBALL (SEASONAL)

We supply the gear, a referee, and the paintballs. You provide the teamwork and action. Pali offers endless paintball fun on four custom-built fields. Each course is designed a bit differently to test your strategic skills and ability to maneuver through unique obstacles, and each demands a different game plan to make it through to the end. You can be as wild as you want to be when you run out in an offense position, or hang back to take a crucial defensive position. Because players select their own position and level of exertion, this is a great activity for people at any level of athletic ability. Seasonal restrictions apply. Paintballs harden in cold weather and can cause injury. This activity is best in warmer weather and may be cancelled if the temperature dips too much.

Whether you prefer family game-night classics like Scrabble and Yahtzee, modern classic board games like Settlers of Catan, role-playing games like Dungeons and Dragons, card-based strategy games like Magic: The Gathering, or a good old-fashioned game of air hockey, Pali has just the thing for your group.

GROUND & "LOW ROPES"

A fusion between high-ropes elements and team building initiatives, Pali’s low ropes course offers an advanced setting to challenge even the most cohesive of teams. Tucked away, our course offers solitude and beauty as the elements extend within the surrounding trees. Guided by a trained facilitator, groups looking for a more challenging adaptation of team building will be given the opportunity to put their team skills to the test. The low ropes elements are each uniquely designed to test different parts of teamwork, and each requires different paths of critical thought in order to solve. Your facilitator will structure a sequence based on specific group objectives.

THE JOUST

Channel your inner knight! Anyone who tuned in to American Gladiators as a kid will remember the announcers calling all the exciting Joust action as their favorite Gladiators knocked contenders off of their pedestal with a well-executed swing of their pugil stick. Dare we ever imagine that we'd one day have the opportunity to attempt those same rad maneuvers against our own colleagues, family, and friends? Our 25 x 19 foot inflatable Joust arena allows contenders of all ages to live out their gladiator dreams, but with a decidedly shorter fall and softer landing than Storm or Turbo ever had to deal with.
