Trail Certification

Imagine a global network of Certified Forest Therapy Trails.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

ANFT Trail Certifier Training

Any certified Forest Therapy Guide that has completed the ANFT training and certification course is also eligible to become a ‘Trail Certifier.’ Trail Certifiers receive additional training to facilitate the process of trail certification on behalf of ANFT. The additional training module costs $300 USD; the cost associated with this training supports administrative staff in supporting trail certifiers with any and all questions and concerns in their process.

Trail certifiers are empowered to approach land managers with proposals for trail certification in one of two categories. First, they may help land managers design trails to support local guides in their work as forest therapy guides. Second, they may help land managers design trails that allow guests to perform self-guided forest therapy experiences. Many trails are eligible for certification including but not limited to spas, conservation areas, privately managed land, hospitals, public parks, arboreta and botanical gardens.

The benefits to land managers include increased exposure through their presence on the ANFT global map of certified trails and advertising through the Forest Bathing International digital magazine. Trail certifiers are empowered to set their own prices for their services pertaining to trail certification which include scouting, mapping and documenting trails, performing trail assessments, making recommendations to land managers for trail improvements and forest therapy self-guided invitations, and acting as a liaison between land managers and the ANFT office. Trail certifiers should expect to earn between $1000-$1500 USD for their services for each trail certified.
