Interpretive Activities

Free interpretive talks are offered at the top of the skyride – discuss local vegetation, the history of Gore Mountain, and facts about the surrounding views. These talks are free for all ticketed guests and season passholders. Please check back for daily gathering times.

Check out our independent interpretive hikes– the Hardwood Forest Loop is located in the Base Area and the Alpine Sky Loop is at the top of Bear Mountain near where the gondola skyride unloads.

Enjoy a relaxing stroll through our Mountaintop Labyrinth, located below the Fairview Observation Deck on the Alpine Sky Loop interpretive trail. Labyrinths are ancient patterns over 4,000 years old, and walking them has been known to help quiet the mind and offer relaxation, balance, and well-being.
