“Inspired” is the word we most often hear from visitors who tour Sage Mountain Center. Whether you want tangible ideas for building your own place, updates on off-grid living, or just need a break from the pressure of conventional society, we offer you a fun and educational solution.

Sage Mountain Center tours include off-grid solar electricity, lithium ion battery storage, solar hot water, wind generation, organic gardens, a large labyrinth, dry (composting) toilets, year-round greenhouse, and straw bale/cordwood building technologies. All are laid out in an environment designed to nurture the spirit.

Trail tours can be guided or on your own using our Trail Map. The moderate 2-mile trail system features spectacular views, safe and well-marked paths, 300’ elevation gain, the Boulder Batholith and The Wall.
