Hiking Trails

Like our founder, Josephine Duveneck, said, “Becoming aware of the relationship with all living things to other living things is the key to knowing ourselves”. One great way to do that is go for a hike! At Hidden Villa, we have a network of scenic trails for every level of hiker (see trail descriptions below map). Hiking groups with more than 10 participants must fill out this form in advance of your visit.

In addition, Hidden Villa’s most popular trail loops and some new self-guided tours are now accessible on the Easy2Hike mobile application.

Download the Easy2Hike app for both iOS and Android devices.


Below is a map of the trails that are currently open.
