Getting Back to Nature

“Come to the woods for here is rest.”

These words were spoken by John Muir, an avid conservationist and early advocate of preservation of wilderness in the U.S.  Like Mr. Muir, we here at Briar Chapel place much focus on the preservation of our natural surroundings. Every now and then, we like to take some time to appreciate Mother Nature, and it’s not that difficult with 900 acres of open space and greenways throughout the community.

Muir loved nature so much that he had one of the most well-known hiking trails in the United States named after him. The 211-mile John Muir Trail of California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range was named in his honor. Although Briar Chapel’s hiking and biking trails cover 24 miles, our 2010 TORC Endurance Race contestants can attest that that’s plenty, whether you are boosting your adrenaline or unwinding after a long day.

Where is your favorite outdoor spot to relieve some stress? Briar Chapel residents frequently enjoy walks along the trails and greenways, as well as some good old fashioned play time at any of our 21 distinct neighborhood parks, including the most recently built Briar Patch.

Here at Briar Chapel, we not only love nature, but we love to share our natural experiences with other nature-lovers out there; and what better time to do that than in 70 degree fall weather? Come out and walk the trails, enjoy the parks, or simply observe your surroundings and wildlife with us at our first Naturalist event on Saturday, November 6. Take a stroll along our red and orange leaf-covered trails and feel free to discover all that nature has to offer during this beautiful time of year! Don’t worry; our colorful natural art trail markers won’t let you lose your way. After exploring, make your way back to The Briar Club for fall storytelling, where we’ll be roasting s’mores over the fire pit.

So, although the trick-or-treating fun may be coming to an end, Mother Nature still has plenty of treats in store; just take a look around you!
