Hike the Land of Medicine Buddha Loop

There are two trail options at the center. The short trail called “Eight Verses Pilgrimage Trail,” offers people the opportunity to meditate on thought transformation in a peaceful and picturesque outdoor setting.

As you walk up the driveway to LMB from the wooden bridge, enter a wide, unmarked path on your left. It begins in climbing ivy and follows a deeply-trenched, shallow stream for the first mile. A mile in, cross over the creek and begin a short, undulating climb. A mile from the creek crossing (about an hour into the hike), an unmarked trail on the left slips into Nisene Marks State Park via the West Ridge Trail. Keep right to continue along the loop.

At the next intersection, a mile farther, stay right again. Four miles into the hike, you’ll reach a third split marked with a more vivid set of prayer flags. Turn left here to enter the Enchanted Forest.
