  • Moderate Hike

Have you ever wondered why you suddenly feel calm, relaxed, or happy once you’re on a hike? You’ll explore the topics of brain chemistry, sensory input, and the neurochemicals of hiking on this leisurely-paced hike with about 500 feet of elevation gain. The morning conversation will be a casual and broad survey of this vast subject; you’ll hear about brain anatomy and physiology, and consider the brain chemicals released during a typical hike as you enjoy a relaxed pace along the Blue Oak, Dick Bishop, and Dusky-footed Woodrat Trails. Does this spark your curiosity? Join docents Greg Hughes, Susan Bernhard, Helena Cohen, and Chris Christensen to exercise your body and mind, and leave with serotonin and dopamine levels surging.
