The Original Hugs and Hike with the Herd, Rescue Goats
Did you know that spending time around animals reduces stress and increases feelings of happiness? You can double that when they are rescued goats! Come spend time outdoors and meet some of the most affectionate goats there are. Visitors will get an introduction to each goat and and learn about their breed as well as their rescue stories, behaviors and unique characteristics of the species. We are loaded with goat fun facts and corny goat puns to add a little laughter into our day! You'll also become part of the herd when we start a leisurely 1/2 mile hike through marked trails on our 15 acre property with the goats, who enjoy navigating the trails and foraging along the way. Watching the goats in a natural habitat and bonding with them is truly magical. We end with extra quality time with all of the goats, who love lots of attention, allowing for plenty of hugs, scratches, and photo ops. Everyone leaves with a sticker of their favorite goat. This experience is fun for all ages - we have an equal amount of adults and children. If a date or time isn't available on our calendar, please ask! We would love to accommodate you if we are able! Please note: *This activity is rain or shine, with the exception of local weather advisories or heavy rain. * There is a portapotty on-site as a convenience and for emergencies only.

Sanctuary Tour and Pamper a Pig
How often do you have the chance to spend time with an adorable pot belly pig? Well, here is your chance! All of the pot belly pigs at Wayward Ranch Animal Sanctuary have been rescued, whether from abuse, neglect, or simply owners who were not properly educated about how to care for them. With so many myths being perpetuated about these so called "mini pigs" we want to educate about what they are really like while we have fun spoiling them with you. Come and enjoy a piggy day when you can come, take a tour of our entire facility, learning about the work we do with horses, goats, dogs, cats, and pigs. Finish the tour by helping us to feed our pigs their dinner and some scratches and you will get happy grunts and tail wags in return! Other things to note Whenever you are interacting with animals, it is important to keep in mind that animals can be unpredictable. They may accidentally scratch you or even grab a finger when they mean to grab a treat from your hand. Our pigs are not aggressive generally, but it is always best to be cautious around all animals! It's also important that you do NOT bring along your own pet to this experience because they will not be allowed on the experience and cannot be left alone in a car!

Horseback riding in the Catskill Mountains
Take a guided horseback riding tour on our 300+ acres of private mountain trails lead by an experienced guide. After signing up and meeting the horses, we will show you the skills you need to ride through our trails. You will be accompanied by an experienced trail guide the entire time. This is a beginner friendly ride. The ride itself is 1 hour long and is done in a western saddle.
Guided group forest bathing session in serene woodland park
Come and experience the magic of nature in the Lower Hudson Valley in a whole new way through immersing yourself in one of the area's best-kept secrets: the expansive forests of Blue Mountain Park in Peekskill, NY (just over an hour north of NYC). This is a perfect bonding activity for a small group or family! We'll explore the forest and connect with nature through a slow-paced, easeful sensory exploration based on the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku ("forest bathing"). Decades of studies have discovered a wide range of health benefits associated with this practice, including stress relief, better sleep, lowered blood pressure and inflammation, and improved immunity. Your trained and certified guide will lead the way, offering optional invitations designed to help you step into your own authentic way of being in the outdoors. When we intentionally slow ourselves down and awaken our senses, we can find a sense of connection with parts of ourselves and the natural world that we may not have even noticed we were missing. Forest therapy is for everybody. No special skills or equipment required. We'll cover about 1 mile in distance total, taking plenty of seated breaks along the way for our invitations. Consider this a mini-retreat for the mind, body, and soul. Come and sit; we will hold space for you. All are welcome.

Sunset Hike with the Herd
Did you know that everything is better with goats? That’s right - even sunsets! Designed specifically for people who love being outdoors, the beauty of nature and animals! Come hike with us and our herd of rescued goats through the beauty of the forest tucked into a remote part of the Catskills, just 2 hrs from Manhattan. Your guide can tell you the rescue story of each goat for those interested, share their quirks/personalities and answer any questions you might have (with a few terrible goat jokes/puns thrown in for good measure.) Our goats love to walk our trails, so they magically follow and walk with us through the woods as we become part of their herd. No leashes needed! We will meander through the forest over beautiful streams, enjoying the wildlife and scenery while we enjoy a sunset over a seven mile water view of the Rondout Reservoir. We end with a roaring bonfire, with complimentary warm apple cider, tea, coffee and marshmallows to roast. You are welcome to bring your adult beverages as well :) If you are looking for a unique outdoor experience that combines your love of animals and nature - this is for you!
Hike beautiful Breakneck Ridge, along the Hudson River
Our journey begins in Cold Spring, NY (right on the border of Beacon, NY) where we'll meet. There is street parking available on the side of route 9D, the beginning of the trail is a short walk from most of the parking. I'll be prepared with snacks, water, first aid kit and ponchos and other hiking essentials for our 3 mile hike. The first portion of our hike will be a tough, steep, uphill hike, requiring the use of your hands for climbs over some boulders, but we'll go at your group's pace with plenty of time to take in scenery, hydrate, and learn. After the first part, there are a few tough areas but not as hard as earlier and then the 2nd half is all down hill! The trail loops back to route 9D and very close to where we all parked. Our route should take about 3.5 hours, give or take, depending on your pace and level of experience. I can't wait to show you the beauty of Breakneck Ridge and the Hudson Valley!
