Connect with Mother Nature at Earth Sanctuary, a pristine reserve, sculpture garden, and retreat center just an hour's drive and ferry ride from Seattle. This tranquil oasis of greenery offers trails that deliver more than just the classic "walk in the woods" experience--look out for some of over 80 species of plants and 20 species of trees, as well as dozens of types of birds that breed on this property. After your walk, visit the retreat center, a non-denominational haven where you can relax and meditate. Put Earth Sanctuary into our Langley trip website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • This is a very beautiful and relaxing trail to walk. It is pretty big so take some time when you go. The scenery is really cool. And if you’re looking for cool birds it’s a nice stop.
  • Kind of a 'Meh' place for my wife and I. Felt more like we fell into a tourist trap than any legit Buddhist or spiritual location. There were a couple cool stone structures but the walk between them wasn't especially beautiful or anything. (maybe this is seasonal? We were there in March. Or perhaps we're spoiled by our native Humboldt greenery) The art installation that boiled down to a metal sheet with a story plaque next to it and a sheet of fabric that had not been kept up and was partially flapping in the wind was an especially hard pill to swallow after depositing our $17 in the dropbox. Shout out to the person who left their mascara bottle as an offering (I guess?) on one of the stone shrines. Hope that led you to spiritual enlightenment.
  • You'll find this place if you need it. Worth every bit of the journey as well.
  • Such a peaceful beautiful place to visit. Very spiritual as well
  • It was nice. But there wasn't much from place to place. Could use more color
