Wilderness Backpacking Trip
During a backpacking adventure from Treks and Tracks, you can experience California's wilderness without the hassle of organizing a trip yourself. The company provides the gear, while you enjoy the great outdoors and learn real backcountry skills, such as how to find edible plants and honor leave-no-trace principles. Two-day backpacking trips are available in Ojai, Point Reyes, Shi Shi beach, and Hoh Rainforest. A fifth option, the Practical Wilderness Survival course, takes you to Yosemite for 3 days of hands-on survival training. Each trip includes:


  • Tents and backpacks
  • Sleeping bags and pads
  • One dinner and one breakfast (one breakfast per day)
  • Water purification systems
  • First-aid kit
  • Detailed list of what to bring

What to Expect


  • You'll hike 3–6 miles in a day depending on the trip.
  • Hiking during this trip is considered strenuous—you should be in good shape.
  • Your backpack will weigh 30–40 pounds (weight varies based on what you bring).

  • Warm-water swimming holes are found along your route.
  • Stunning mountain views are never out of sight.

Point Reyes
Just an hour's drive north of San Francisco, Point Reyes National Seashore holds some of the Bay Area's most unspoiled views of the Pacific Ocean. No experience is needed for this hike, which is suitable for hikers 12 or older.


  • Migrating whales are often visible from the shore.
  • Views of Little Yosemite Valley await you at the top of the mountain.

Shi Shi Beach

On this trip, you'll hike through Shi Shi Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches located on the Pacific coast. This two-day hike rewards 4.5 miles of walking with unforgettable views of the starry night from the camp. This trek requires participants to be in moderately good physical condition.
