Alpha Trail

The Climb to Inspiration Point!

God, I know the path that tells Thy way through the cool eve of everyday. God, I can push the grass apart and lay my fingers on Thy heart.
Edna St. Vincent Millay

Alpha trail is one of three paths leading to Inspiration Point, which is one of the highest locations on Questhaven Retreat and the site of our annual Easter Sunrise Service. There is a large cross on its ridge that beckons all to lift their consciousness to our beloved Lord.

The trail begins across from the entrance gate at the site of the Oak grove where Flower and Lawrence first held worship services. Taking the first path to the right, this trail winds upwards through a variety of plant life around the back side of the destination. It has a feeling of walking with Christ through Jerusalem as you make your way through an ancient Olive grove and climb a steep hill before seeing the cross and Questhaven below. Beautiful views in all directions including the center of Questhaven and the distant ocean.
