Backpacking Adventure

Friday - Sunday, August 28-August 30

The North Coast of California is well known for its abundance of accessible areas. This backpacking trip will take place in either the Marble Mountains or Trinity Alps. These unique mountain ranges will expose any level backpacker to the landscapes that paint a mirage of absolute beauty. Imagine rugged mountain peaks, pristine lakes, grassy meadows and amazing sunsets and you have a picture of what this trip has to offer. This weekend trip will consist of a moderate hike into base camp and plenty of time for day hiking, sunbathing, socializing, fishing and/or just contemplating.


Program Fee: $75 includes transportation, guides, permits and instructional materials.

Mandatory pre-trip meeting: Wednesday, August 26th, 6:00pm – 7:00pm
