Details

Here is what the Wilderness Press writes:

"The Pescadero Creek watershed is prime redwood country, part of a pristine system or forested ridges, hillsides, and valleys that stretches all the way to the Pacific Ocean.  From the high rim of the creek's remote canyon, you wind down on steep lonesome trails through oak stands and ancient Douglas-fir forests, in a blissful mixture of sun and shade, until you reach the magnificent grove of giant redwoods by the edge of the creek.  The nearby campground is sheltered under old-growth redwoods high above the creek, peaceful and secluded.  The next day you [hike] along the long loop trail to remote Butano Ridge, a no-man's-land suffused with palpable solitude.  On the final day, you return along a network of beautifully wooded trails that will take you past a derelict mill, an awe-inspiring giant redwood, a curious creek where crude oil naturally oozes into the stream, and impressive groves of ancient trees.  So must beauty so close to one of the continent's largest metropolises is a miracle."

NOTE: Adult crew members will drive and leave cars overnight.
