Local Adventure | Backpacking in Portola Redwoods

Grab your hiking boots and join us for an awesome overnight backpacking program in Portola Redwoods State Park! This is a fantastic opportunity to learn how to pack a bag, set up a stellar camp and cook under the stars! The hike will be 6 miles total with 1,000 feet of elevation gain, just enough to challenge yourself but still be able to tell your best story to some new trail friends. Connect with your SF community and get ready for true adventure!

Registration will be emailed to the SF Trib 10 weeks prior to the program.

In an effort to spread the FD love, this program is only open to folks who have attended fewer than 2 Multi-Day programs with us previously.

COST: $150 Registration Fee **We believe that everyone should have access to our programs- if it is outside of your means to pay this fee, please email [email protected] and we will do our best to remove this financial barrier. You are responsible for your transportation to and from the program.
