This experience is an introduction to the native flora and ecosystem diversity in the high plains and foothills of Colorado. We will meet at a park in central Colorado Springs and hike an easy trail together, stopping regularly to talk about the plants we encounter along the way. We will cover topics including:
• identification tips (printouts will be provided for guests to reference)
• edibility, usage, and health benefits of wild plants
• ethical harvesting guidelines and cultural history of native plants
Guests will come away with a deeper understanding of and appreciation for Colorado's ecosystems, as well as knowledge of how they can use native plants in their own lives. Each guest will also be given a wildcrafted tea blend to take home as a reminder of their experience.

What a lovely morning spent learning about local plants and their uses. We are new Colorado Springs locals so it was great to learn more about the area we now call home :)

The herb walk with Sophia was my first Airbnb "experience" booking. I really like to learn about the native plant communities in the places I visit, and so when the walk popped up as as a suggestion I took it. I met Sophia at a really wonderful urban park I would not otherwise have known about, and we spent an hour on the trails geeking out over our mutual love of plants! Sophia also thoughtfully provided some homemade herb tea bags to enjoy. Whether you are an experienced botanical enthusiast or a total newbie, Sophia has a wonderful and gentle way of sharing her plant knowledge, with a focus on herbal medicine and wild edibles/foraging. Totally recommended!

The experience was informative and engaging. A great way to explore an under visited little nook within Colorado Springs. A lot of helpful tips on how plants in our environment can help us with common ailments.

A calm 1-mile walk with an herbalist learning about the seasonal CO Springs plants. It was a nice introduction to gathering herbs from nature for my boys (7 and 10 yo), but not a tour to learn about foraging in the local environment. Sophia was easy to communicate with, since we had to alter the schedule slightly due to weather.

My daughter and I had a wonderful time walking with Sophia! We learned so much, and she was very patient and accommodating with questions. She was very thoughtful and messaged us earlier in the morning to prepare us for the weather and to caution us about potentially slippery trails due to rain overnight. Thank you!

This was a fantastic hike that was off the beaten path of the typical tourist attractions. Sophia was amazing and very knowable about the plants in the area and on the trail. She was friendly and easy to chat with. The hike was beautiful with great vantage points to take photos. It was an easy hike and enough stops along the way to catch your breath if you are having issues with the altitude like I was. I highly recommend this as you will not be disappointed.
