Day trips to Kalapa

Kalapa Valley is open to visitors daily. 

If you would like to come and walk in the valley  you are cordially invited.  Please park your car at the gate (please don’t block the gate).   It is about a 1/2 mile in to where the road forks.  you can go either direction.  To the right might be a little wet depending on recent and current weather 🙂  you will come to the barn.  If you continue to the right you will come to a small trail which also forks.  The left will take you to the interior of the valley along the river.  The right will take you back in the direction of the road and eventually to the river. 

At the barn you can also walk across the lawn and through the meadows and along the ‘rocky trail’ which will eventually lead you to Peddlers Brook.  Just before the river on your left is a small trail going up!  The trail follows the river and leads to the waterfalls.  This is a wonderful place to meditate.  If you cross the river and continue straight you will come to the salmon pool on the right – which is very nice for swimming. 

Below is a map that gives you a sense of the property.  You enter on the right. 

Please when you are walking be aware that there are wild animals (coyotes and moose etc).  The general suggestion is to make a little noise as you walk so they know you are there.  Please also pick up any litter you find and take away with you.  Please consider the buildings are not offered unless you have booked them with the Director Gary Brown
