The Destination
Explore the splendid grassland that tops Black Mountain with an overnight backpacking trip. Camping out far from the pressure cooker of the city provides the perfect opportunity to fully enjoy this beautiful spot in the Santa Cruz mountains, halfway between the bay and the stars. Strap on your pack and get ready for a fabulous hiking journey, complete with gourmet backpacking meals, your own sleeping padand tent rental options available for an extra fee. Perfect for healthy, active adults, this 10-mile round-trip hike involves 1,500 feet of elevation gain — meaning you'll get a great workout as well as an unforgettable camping experience.

The Diversions
On the Black Mountain overnight trip, you'll wander through the wilderness with your guide, discovering the common plants, animal signs, and points of interest on the challenging and thrilling trek. It starts steep, but soon levels out, with plenty of room for frequent breaks, snacks, training and class activities. You'll learn how to use equipment like water filters, camp stoves, GPS, and more, plus trip planning, wilderness skills, and how to properly set up camp.

  • An amazing weekend with a great team of people who took wonderful care of us. I loved it and would return again.
