This trip, known as the "Classic Sierra Hike", begins a few minutes from Bishop and crosses 3 passes. We climb over Bishop Pass, Muir Pass and Piute Pass - each over 11,000 feet.

Muir Beach Featured Trail Journal
The Marin Headlands Loop is a spectacular hike through one of the Bay Area's most scenic areas. It offers enough of a challenge to keep you working and enough casual strolls along ridge lines and valley floors to relax your muscles.

Chile Featured Picture Gallery
Strybing Arboretum is one of the gems of San Francisco. Located in Golden Gate Park it offers a break from the city. If it weren't for the sounds of traffic you would think you were in the forests of Chile or the Redwood forests of Northern California.
