Following our incredible urban hike in San Francisco, the MT Sobek and Outbound Collective teams are lacing up boots for another summer outing. This time we're tackling the 7-mile Marin Headlands Loop on July 28, 2018.
Join MT Sobek and our friends at The Outbound Collective on May 19, 2018, for a free urban walking adventure through San Francisco's city streets. We will climb seven summits, ascending to take in some of the finest city views from Twin Peaks and Mount Olympus (once viewed as the geographic center of the city), and journey along the flanks of Mount Parnassus. Along the way, we'll stroll through areas of history, art and hidden mystery that are part of San Francisco's landscape.
Gear up for a stunning Mount Diablo hike on Saturday April 21, 2018, offered in collaboration with our friends at The Outbound Collective! From the lush meadows of Mitchell Canyon we'll hike a less-traversed 8 mile loop trail on the mountain's north side. Our path rises up into the chaparral and offers hikers a chance to summit one of Mount Diablo State Park's roadless peaks, and enjoy iconic views of the Bay Area. We've also chosen this hike to coincide with the area’s peak wildflower bloom, so be sure to bring along your camera!
Join the Mountain Travel Sobek team on March 29, 2018, for an exciting evening with Slovenia expert Luka Poznic. As manager of our local operations in Slovenia, Luka has been instrumental in putting Slovenia on the map for MTS with classic trips like Hiking Slovenia's Julian Alps and Istria to Venice—A Culinary Route, plus our new trip for 2018 Hiking the Alpe Adria. Being a mine of knowledge on everything Slovenian, he'll lead us on a journey through the country from the alpine lakes and mountains of Triglav National Park and the underground caves of the Karst to the shimmering waters of the Adriatic coastline. He'll also discuss the country's food and wine scene, and may even bring a tipple to enjoy! This is your chance to ask anything about Slovenia and find out why it's one of Europe's best-kept secrets.
Jack London Historic State Park, in partnership with the local events team at Mountain Travel Sobek, is proud to host a fundraising hike on Jan 27, 2018 to help fund a fuel reduction and defensible space program to mitigate extreme fire dangers. This is the perfect opportunity to return to Sonoma County and lend support for Sonoma Mountain and Jack London Park, which are among the most treasured gifts in the Sonoma Valley. It’s also a great way to meet like-minded hikers and find rejuvenation in the great outdoors! We will also be joined by some of the park staff at Jack London Park.
