WHAT CAN I EXPECT FOR LODGING?
We've booked a beautiful 110 acre farm. We have shared rooms, bunks, etc. If you're traveling with your partner, we also have some private rooms available. Lodging requests are fulfilled on a first come first served basis.
How are we getting around?
Travelers are expected to get to the farm under their own steam. If you do not have transportation of your own, let us know and we'll be happy to connect you with someone to carpool with. Daily activities are all close to the farm and once again, we'll be carpooling. Highline will not be providing daily transportation on this trip.
WHAT KIND OF SHAPE DO I NEED TO BE IN?
Nearly all programming on our adventure is optional. That said, you will enjoy the trip a lot more if you are able to tag along on most things. Our trips are not designed for hard core trail junkies, endurance athletes, or master yogis. We do recommend that you are able to handle a multi hour hike at an average pace (with plenty of snacks and water breaks in between). For trail running, all paces are welcome! Ideally you run a few times a week, feel comfortable with distances between three and six miles and can hang with a 10 minute / mile pace. We keep a guide at the front and one in the rear so that no runner or hiker is left behind. The runs we have scheduled on our trip range from 3.5 miles to 6 miles with plenty of opportunities to stop, catch your breath and take in the sights. For yoga, our teacher has an all-levels approach, suitable for beginners and experienced yogis, alike. Highline is a proudly inclusive company and we do our best to accommodate and make everyone feel welcome. If you are unsure about whether you will be able to enjoy yourself on our trip, shoot us an email! firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT ABOUT INTERNET AND PHONE RECEPTION?
Our trips are intentionally designed to help you unplug. Phone service will come in and out depending on where we are. We cannot guarantee you will be able to connect at any given time. The farm does have WiFi, but we prefer to leave our laptops at home and just enjoy each other's company.
WHAT IF I’M NOT IN THE MOOD TO GO ON ONE OF THE RUNS OR HIKES?
Not a problem! We want you to enjoy yourself and all activities are optional.
HOW ARE THE RUNNING CONDITIONS?
In short, hilly and fun.
HOW INTENSE ARE THE HIKES?
The hikes are a moderate distance with a fair amount of elevation change. We do have one long hike planned that can take up to 7 hours.
CAN I BRING MY COMPUTER?
If you must, but our goal here is to unplug. Probably best to leave it at home and not worry about it!
IF LIFE GETS IN THE WAY OR SOMETHING COMES UP, CAN I CANCEL?
Cancellations within 7-days of booking will receive a full-refund, minus a 2.9% credit card processing fee.
After the 7-day window, deposits are non-refundable.
Cancellations after the 7-day window and before 30-days or less to the trip start will receive a 50% refund*
30-days or less from the start of the trip, there are No Refunds.
*Applicable only if your balance has been paid in full and on time. If the balance has not been paid and you have to cancel, we will retain the full deposit.
WHAT DO I NEED TO PACK?
A duffle bag with some essentials and clothes to be active in should suffice. We provide a detailed packing list for each trip upon completion of your reservation.
SHOULD I TIP MY GUIDES?
While tips are greatly appreciated, they are not expected. If you choose to tip on a retreat lead by our co-founders, your tip will be donated to The Conservation Alliance's Public Lands Defense Fund.
CAN I ARRIVE EARLY OR LEAVE LATE?
Get in touch and let us know what you’re thinking. We’ll do our best to help accommodate special requests or help you plan your stay in the event that you want to add on extra nights.
WHAT ABOUT SAFETY?
Safety and your enjoyment on this adventure is our primary concern. Our guides are WFA (wilderness first aid) certified, we keep a watchful eye on the weather and conditions and talk to the local Park Rangers to insure all activities are as safe as possible. We also carry 2-way radios and / or GPS distress beacons to alert 911 in case of an emergency. We ask that our fellow travelers follow our lead of responsible enjoyment of our wilderness areas and don’t put themselves in dangerous situations.
