Located in a natural setting along Cedar Creek, it is a classic 7-circuit labyrinth design.  Unlike a maze designed to hide the ultimate path destination, labyrinths are typically circular with a clear path to the center.  Sacred crystals are planted where two ley lines meet near the Turtle Moon labyrinth - planting of sacred crystals is believed to renew and strengthen Earth’s ley lines.
The Turtle Moon labyrinth will be open daily sunrise to sunset year round, free parking.
