Descend from foggy wooded hills, through old-growth groves of redwood, and onto sun-drenched strips of sandy beach on this epic backpacking trip on California’s stunning coast. Leave the noise and city lights behind as you trek along the Skyline-to-the-Sea Trail with an experienced outdoor guide.
Begin your exhilarating expedition 3,000 feet (914 m) above sea level, at Castle Rock State Park. Make final adjustments to the straps on your pack before you hit the trail. Navigate steep hillsides and savor lofty views of the surrounding landscape where thick woodlands and shrubby scrubland collide.
When the sun begins to drop, find a scenic spot to make camp and prepare a delicious dinner in the fresh mountain air before settling in for the evening, sleeping in a cozy tent underneath the stars. With reserved campsites and planned meals for every day of your trek, you can focus on enjoying the scenery rather than worrying about what’s for breakfast.
Wake up to the chirps and tweets of birds and drop into Big Basin Redwoods State Park, where towering trees flank your path and dappled sunlight filters through the canopy to the forest floor. Along the way, listen to your guide share information about the area’s biological diversity and keep your eyes peeled for resident wildlife.
As you near the coast, reach the tranquil pools beneath Berry Creek Falls and take a break in the misty air. Refreshed and ready to go, make the final push to Waddell Creek Beach, where the Pacific Ocean’s pounding surf welcomes you to the end of your 30-mile (48-km) adventure.
