Hikers stop to look at plants on the side of a trail

Registration is now open for the California State Parks Backpacking Adventures (CASPBA) program, which will offer three guided backpacking tours in the Santa Cruz Mountains this summer. Led by experienced backcountry naturalists, the CASPBA trips are enjoyable for novice and advanced backpackers alike. Trips are tailored to each group’s skill level, including night hikes for the active and native plant teas for the relaxed.

CASPBA has been on hiatus due to the pandemic and the CZU Lightning Complex Fire. Trips this year will avoid burned areas and also will follow all state and local COVID guidelines. Trips are open to adults 18 and older. Children ages 13-17 can participate when accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Limited spots available! Learn about the different trip options and register: https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=28503
