Who better to lead you through our parks than California State Park professionals? Six backpacking trips are offered from April through September 2017 ranging from one to three nights offering
options for every experience level. Hike spectacular ridgelines, old growth redwood forests, to sandy shores with our knowledgeable team of backcountry naturalists. Native plant teas, trail desserts,
skills demonstrations, campfire stories and jokes are added bonuses!
