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 as you enjoy a relaxed nature outing along the Blue Oak, Dick Bishop, and Dusky-footed Woodrat Trails. Does this spark your curiosity? Join docents Greg Hughes, Susan Bernhard, Nina Bell, and Alex Woo, and get ignited.
