Sea to Bohemia Trekking Adventure
If you’ve ever taken a leisurely drive along Sonoma County’s back roads, heading to the ocean, you’re familiar with the broad and rolling hills that dominate the landscape near the coast. It’s almost impossible to gaze at that beautiful landscape without wishing you could walk across it for miles and miles.
Now you can, thanks to LandPaths, a local nonprofit conservation group. On August 7-9, the organization is sponsoring “TrekSonoma: Sea to Bohemia,” a 17-mile, 2-night/3-day walk from Shell Beach (in Sonoma County State Beach) eastward to Camp Meeker.
LandPaths’ mission is to “foster a love of the land in Sonoma County.” One of many ways the organization works toward accomplishing this goal is through public outings and excursions that create opportunities to enjoy the outdoors.
LandPaths has access to both the public and private lands that will be crossed during TrekSonoma. Campers will walk, eat locally, and camp out both nights.
Campers provide their own sleeping bag, pad and tent, but all group camping gear (kitchen, utensils, Loo, bathing station, dining tent & chairs) will be provided by LandPaths. All camping gear will be shuttled to the overnight stays, so that participants need only carry a daypack, water and day-hike essentials.
All food, spirits and use fees are included in the cost of this trip. The standard fee is $390/person, but LandPaths offers a limited number of work-trade scholarships.
