Coastal Trail Hidden Beach Section

I actually went on this trip 6 years ago. Yes, years. Six of em’. Twas a pre-graduation trip to myself before I graduated from Davis, so I decided to go on the Redwoods Car Camping trip over Memorial Day Weekend with Outdoor Adventures (the outdoorsy club at my school)!

“Car camping” is perhaps slightly misleading, because we did in fact stay in tents. I only kindasorta knew 2 other people going on the trip because we were in the same major (yay for EXB!), but that didn’t really matter–it was a ton of fun!

We had a pre-trip meeting to discuss logistics and what to pack, and we also discussed where we wanted to hike.

Since I rarely ever got to see the beach (living in Davis with no car or license will do that to you), it was a welcome sight. We found some flat rocks to chill on and eat snacks before continuing.

Stay tuned for the hike we did next, which is arguably one of the most beautiful hikes in the country! <3 (I might be a little biased.)

  • What’s your favorite thing to see when you’re hiking?
  • Longest hike you’ve ever been on? Where was it?

    I think we should hike the Appalachian Trail sometime together! The adventures of Rebecca and Farrah taken to the outdoors! That would be so cool!

      My feet/legs are definitely kinda sore after super long hikes, but it’s so worth all the pretty views! <3!

    What a beautiful place to explore! <3

    The longest hike I've ever been on was only like 2 hours – but I really want to go on a super long hike one day as I could walk for days 😛 I just love walking and seeing what's around me!
