Lovely place to clear your head

Not only is the labyrinth a lovely spot to clear your head, but St. Marks itself is stunningly beautiful both inside and out. PS: The bathrooms are the nicest in town...

I attend St. Mark's-in-the-Valley Church, loving every aspect of the place. The Labyrinth is a good way of center oneself without resorting to traditional prayer. It's also a bit difficult if you have balance issues or problem walking. The surfaces, while groomed, are a bit uneven and many sharp changes of direction occur. Still, worthwhile.

Very beautiful setting. I found it through Tripadvisor beforehand and everyone's reviews were very helpful. I admit, I never knew what a Labrynth was or that they existed outside of a movie. I surprised my family with this little stop, I thought it was suppose to be a maze. I read after the fact what it is really for. So,... More

This is a beautiful setting with children laughing and playing nearby. Immaculate grounds and very friendly staff. Excellent signage and free, clean toilets. Go take a look at the sanctuary if you have a chance.

Fun for little ones, but not a challenge. I walked the whole labyrinth just to say I did. Difficult to take a photo unless you're tall with a wide lens.

As a budding student in landscape architecture with two small children, I embraced creating the courtyard and labryrinth of my home church, St. Mark's in the Valley more than twenty years ago. It is has become a place of peace for people of all faiths or none, as we like to say. I hope many will enjoy for years to... More

I have walked a few labyrinths in my day, all of them unique and profound, and this one was no different. If you have not walked a labyrinth before, here is a quick link to give you some tips on how to do it.: http://www.wikihow.com/Meditate-in-a-Labyrinth It took me a few minutes to find the labyrinth, which is located behind the...

We love finding and walking labyrinths, and finding this one tucked behind so many tasting rooms and gift shops was a real treat. Adjacent the garden is a beautifully landscaped churchyard cemetery and also on the grounds is a lovely church. We love their posted welcome sign that says people of all faiths, and those with none are all welcomed... More

I am a labyrinth lover and seek them out wherever I go. I was in this delightful little village August 29-30 and didn't know it was there. I cannot believe I missed it. It looks delightful and I will have to make sure I seek it out the next time I am in this area.
