We will meet at Manchester Nature Preserve in Encinitas. The guests will meet Buttercup and Cotton Candy, our angora goats, feed them treats and then take turns holding the leashes as we walk along the nature preserve trails. This is a scenic hike through the California Sage Brush, with wild flowers (seasonal). While we're walking you can learn about the history of the angora goat and goat keeping in general, ask questions or simply enjoy their sweet personalities as we walk (or run) along the trail.
Contrary to goat yoga this activity is suitable for all ages and does not require special athletic skills. We will end the walk with a mohair spinning and knitting demonstration and enjoy a cold sparkling water.

Please note: Goat walking is slightly different from dog walking. Goats like to browse, meaning they regularly stop to nibble on vegetation. This makes the walk fun for them and mimics their natural behavior. Also, just like us humans, there are days when they feel energized and move at a fast pace (usually during cooler weather) and other days when they feel more lazy and want to stop for snacks more often. I do not want or expect my animals to perform like circus animals, instead I adapt to their energy level. For that reason the hiking times and distances do vary.

If you have health concerns consider making your goat hike "private."

I am a life long animal lover. As a holistic health practitioner I have been studying the healing powers of animals, especially prey animals like horses and goats, on humans that suffer from PTSD, autism and depression. Spending time in the presence of these animals is soothing, fun and brings out the playful curious side in people. After seeing the responses of random strangers on the beach (like adults running after us squealing with excitement) every time we take Butters and Candy (our angora goats) for a walk, I thought it would be nice to share this experience with others.

Her skal du være

We will be hiking through California native plants at Manchester Preserve in Encinitas.
Depending on skill level we can either take the valley trail (easy) or hike up to the ridge with views of the local mountains (moderate).
The Beach Walk is available after Labor Day due to overcrowded beaches and lack of parking during the summer. This hike is tide dependent because the beach we are allowed to walk on is only accessible during low tide.

It was such a fun family outing. This was my present for my 82 year old mother in law and allowed the teens to be away from the internet for several hours. Thank you for sharing your beautiful goats with us. Fyi, there is no bathroom on the trail.

This was such an awesome experience! Beautiful views and a really lovely hike. It was not a difficult trail and it being a sunset hike was great because the weather was beautiful. Simone was a wonderful host, super pleasant and gave great information about the goats and local flora. The goats were so cute and we really enjoyed holding their leashes, feeding them, and hiking with them. Really so glad that we booked this experience!

Simone and her daughter were super friendly and knowledgeable. The goats were adorable. The hike itself was very pretty and not strenuous at all. Really enjoyed my experience!

What a great experience. A beautiful preserve, Cotton Candy and Buttercup were so much fun and so full of personality, a beautiful sunset with Simone and Summer. Get away from the freeways and traffic and spend some time in the beauty of Encinitas. Will definitely be going back with my family.

Simone made this experience amazing for myself and the three that came along with me. (Myself, my best friend, and two nine year olds). We all enjoyed this experience so much and the location was beautiful as well. She is so humane with her animals and you can tell how much she loves them.
