February at Rancho La Puerta

The oak tree’s leaves gently sway in the predawn light as you walk to the trailheads for our morning hikes. The whispers and footsteps of your fellow hikers on this journey are a welcome greeting for the day. It is a new month at The Ranch and full of the promises that have made it a reprieve for 80 years–a haven where guests come to restore balance to their lives. Here are a few of the classes to help you on your way.
