“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.

Sage Wall and trail hikes are by reservations ONLY. The moderate 2-mile trail system features spectacular views, safe and well-marked paths, 300’ elevation gain, the Boulder Batholith and the Sage Wall. See our Trail Map.

We offer scheduled SMC facility tours to individuals or large groups, tailored to specific interests. No drop-ins please. For Sage Wall/trails and tours email us FIRST at for appointment dates and times, then we will transfer you to our online registration/payment portal. Please leave pets at home.
