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.

ZUMBA

Our certified instructors take your group through an upbeat, dance-based workout set to great music. Appropriate for beginners and Zumba enthusiasts alike, this energizing class is a fun way to get your group moving. With a workout that’s “for everybody and every body,” Zumba welcomes people of all levels and ability to have fun together in the activity sometimes referred to as “exercise in disguise.” When you’re deep into the beats of Latin and world rhythms, it’s hard to notice that you’re also burning calories, strengthening muscles, and improving balance and flexibility.
