LandPaths Family Trek - Shell Beach to Willow Creek (and back!)
Families of all ages are invited to join LandPaths on a 2-day Trek beginning and ending at Shell Beach, near Jenner. From the coast, walk five miles inland to a secluded privately owned ranch on the edge of Willow Creek State Park for an overnight of camping, storytelling, good food, and a starry night around a fire. Families will be able to wander, play, and relax along the beautiful salmon-bearing Willow Creek. After a leisurely Sunday morning families will hike back to the coast over our beautiful coastal hills and through spring flowers.
LandPaths will provide dinner and a simple breakfast, as well as transporting all of the gear to the camping spot so that families can walk with only a small day pack. Families are asked to provide their own lunches and camping gear. But if you do not have camping gear, don't let that be a deterrent, they have some to rent!
With access to both public and private lands, the group will walk, eat locally, ‘comfy camp’ and traverse roughly 10 miles over two days. All camping gear will be shuttled between the trailhead on the coast and the overnight camping site, leaving participants to simply carry a knapsack with water and other day-hike essentials.
Cost: $125 Adults and Youth 13 and over; $75 first Youth 12 and under; Free second Youth 12 and under; Free for babes in arms. LandPaths encourages those for whom cost is a barrier to apply for the limited number of work-trade scholarships available.
