What you'll learn in this tour class:

If you live in the bay area, the idea of backpacking doesn’t have to mean sitting in traffic for another few hours to reach a trailhead. The Skyline to Sea trail is the perfect adventure for a Santa Cruz/Bay Area local looking to have a genuine backcountry experience with varying terrain, right in our own beloved coastal home.
  • 3-Day, 2-Night Trip – All Inclusive
  • Backpack right in the Bay Area!
  • Learn backcountry skills and tour the old growth redwoods.
  • Expert Guides with Local Knowledge
This 3 day, 30 mile hike begins by departing Castle Rock State Park where one can see mountains and vistas that stretch to the final destination, Waddell Creek Beach. Along the way, you will transcend through the ancient coast redwoods of Big Basin State park. Take a break and relax while feeling the mist of the 65 foot tall, Berry Creek Falls. This adventure is the perfect way to see the all the diversity of flora and fauna that exist from 2000 ft in elevation, all the way down to sea level! Hiking is a personal adventure. Find a rhythm for yourself and stick with it. Remember that you are in no hurry and are out to enjoy yourself. Have good boots that are well broken in. Just pay attention to your body and enjoy.
