Adventure is out there!
This past July 16-19, OLLI at HSU teamed up with local hiking enthusiasts to create the first Humboldt Coastal Hike – a four-day/three-night, fully-supported trek through the majestic redwood forests and along the breathtaking Humboldt County coastline. Thank you to everyone who participated or supported this amazing experience!
Three days were filled with hiking and exploring nearby trails along the beach and into the redwoods and may include exploring Fern Canyon, visiting waterfalls, viewing rock formations, possible Roosevelt Elk sightings, or discovering the many facets of the vast beach.
The program fee included dinners, camping fees, snacks, educational programs, transportation to and from the trailhead. Each day participants carried day pack and departed on moderate hikes, leaving heavy gear behind. Camp hosts prepared dinners and transport gear.
Be part of the Humboldt Coastal Hike in 2019! Dates are yet to be determined.
