 Experience the majestic beauty of backpacking in the Sespe Wilderness, near Ojai!

Join us for an incredible weekend of backpacking in Southern California. On this overnight trip we meanders through dense groves of oak and bay trees then on to grassland plains.  We enjoy wide valley views and the scenic creek with refreshing swimming holes. 

No experience is necessary on our Backpacking Ojai trip - just a moderate level of physical fitness and an enthusiasm to learn about overnight backpacking.  We provide backpacking gear such as backpacks, sleeping bags and pads, tents, cooking systems and dinner/breakfast.  Vegan and gluten-free options are available.  Throughout our trip we cover essential backpacker know-hows, such as:


  • Trip planning in the backcountry
  • Wilderness safety protocols
  • Leave no trace principals
  • Gear requirements

This trip is designed for beginning to intermediate backpackers in good physical condition.
