Sespe Backpacking

Don’t miss the chance to enjoy the most incredible scenery and hike in our local backcountry! We will follow Sespe Creek as it winds through the mountains and canyons between the California Condor Sanctuary near Fillmore. Warm, sunny days, cool swimming holes and good companionship will be highlights of this trip.

This trip is more intense than our beginning backpacking trips, so we recommend the participants be in very good physical condition with previous backpacking experience. We will cover approximately 30 miles in four days of hiking. Part of this trip is directly down a creek bed without a trail.

Fee covers group breakfasts and dinners while camping, round trip transportation, group cooking equipment, and guides. You provide your own lunches and personal gear. In addition to carrying individual personal equipment, each person will be responsible for carrying some group food and group equipment.
