Mountain Trek completely rebooted my health and wellness motivation, and I got so much more out of it than I could have imagined. There's no question that Mountain Trek is one of the most holistic, rejuvenating experiences out there: being immersed in gorgeous, breath-taking nature and with few technological distractions is a treat like none other in our hectic world....

I first came 11 years ago and this was my 6th trip. It just keeps getting better!! Program was hard and fun; based on science, but with so much time in nature!! Met all my goals. I leave with renewed motivation to pursue health for life!!

This is a lovely place with great hiking and excellent & healthy food where you can completely unplug and reboot your health in a holistic manner. If you really want to get away and learn new things about yourself and your health, I highly recommend it. If you want a more 'traditional' spa experience with lots of treatments (mani/pedi, hot...

I loved my week in the mountains. I gave this experience as a gift to myself to destress, detox and feel rejuvenated. You arrive at this beautiful lodge, and although the bedrooms are quaint you do not need anything more as you are really only in them to sleep. There is daily laundry service which is nice, one less thing...

I have been here before so I am not a newbie to this experience. I have also been to a similar program in Malibu. The overall hiking and views/scenery are spectacular. The lodge itself is nice and the views from the eating area and exercise studio are amazing. Most of the staff was incredibly nice and supportive and upbeat. What...

Thank you so much for your honest comments. It's true that particular week was a stressful anomaly for our manager and we apologize that some actions negatively affected a handful of occasions. We are very aware of how stress has a ripple affect on staff and guests and we assure you the extraordinary circumstances in this instance are definitely not...

We loved our week here. Yes, it was a challenging week and yes, it was a rigid schedule. And, yes, we worked our butts off. But that was sort of the point (to work our literal butts off, if you know what I mean and I think you do!). We hiked, we did the first yoga of our lives, we...

This was a great trip for me. I really wanted to lose that last 10 pounds but I needed help. By the end of the trip, not only did I lose 8 pounds but I also had the best sleep I've had in years. I recommend this amazing experience to everyone!

The staff. They make the activities accessible and encouraged me to really move out of my comfort zone and push myself... it had been years since I did that! The food. Delicious and filling! I was rarely hungry and felt slept better than I had in years. Finally, the location. One of the most beautiful and soul cleansing places I...

Mountain Trek is a good option for certain types of people: people who do well in highly structured in environments, and people who are willing to absorb an entire doctrine of what it means to be healthy without asking too many questions or second-guessing what you're being told. But if you're someone who prefers to be in control of choices,...
