Details

Join us for an beginner/intermediate backpacking trip through Pescadero Creek County Park. This vast parkland of 8,020 acres is truly one of the forgotten gems in the Santa Cruz Mountain Range. The area is adjacent to Sam McDonald, Memorial, and Portola Redwood parks. The park contains a significant amount of forest and watershed related resources. Pescadero Creek, which flows all year round, is a major Steelhead spawning stream. The stream is an important steelhead trout habitat and may be restored for coho salmon.

This is a PERFECT trip for those who are new to backpacking.
