Fall is here and we are heading to the beautiful Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area for a free community hike on November 18, 2017. Following expert guide John Baston, we'll take a 6-mile loop hike (with a 1686' elevation gain) on the Sandstone Peak and Mishe Mokwa trails reaching the tallest point in the southern section of the coastal range mountains at 3,111. Enjoy sweeping views of the range as you hike on well-maintained trails through California sagebrush and bay laurel.
In August MTS President Kimberly Daley and her family had their first MTS field experience, and they couldn’t have picked a better trip on which to get their feet wet—our signature Middle Fork of the Salmon River rafting journey…
Mountain Travel Sobek staff head out to Pinnacles for a day removing an invasive plant species and collecting native wildflower seeds for future restoration projects. Learn more about their day and how you can get involved in National Park habitat restoration here.
The Middle Fork of the Salmon River isn't just a trip. It's something deeper: a journey of no return that makes us bolder and braver. This collection of staff testimonials captures a few personal perspectives that demonstrate why we love the Middle Fork—and often recommend it as a first-time adventure with Mountain Travel Sobek. Interestingly, many who ride the Middle Fork once return with family, friends, and in many cases the next generation of adventure travelers. See you on the river!
The theme of our May outing is "spring training" as we gear up for our summer adventures with a practice hike on the Tennessee Valley trail system in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. We'll start off the hike with a climb up to Coyote Ridge, from where we'll have the option of three loops: a quick 4-mile loop around the Fox Trail; a 7-mile classic loop that includes Pirate's Cove; and a thigh burning 9.5 mile route that also includes the Old Springs Trail, Wolf Ridge Trail, and the Coastal Trail. So join us for a hike in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area on May 20, 2017. See photos from the day!
