Plan time to take that much needed deep breath.

Fall is one of the most intriguing seasons at Mount Hermon. As you walk amongst the redwoods, one can almost hear the surrounding environment take a huge breath after a busy summer. How often do we find ourselves either doing or needing the same thing? A deep breath to let one season pass and prepare ourselves for the next season. Plan time this September to come away to Mount Hermon, to take time to reflect on God’s presence in the seasons of our own lives.

Participants must be between 75 and 250 pounds and at least 52 inches tall. There is an additional charge for Canopy Tour
