Hiking SF Bay Area National Parks

It’s summer in the San Francisco Bay Area! OK, not really. But it sure feels like it these days. The famously foggy City by the Bay and its surrounding areas can get downright chilly during the real summer months.

Luckily, the Bay Area has thousands of acres of National Parks to help you do just that.

Hike for the future of Point Reyes with the Trails Challenge

Point Reyes National Seashore is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a Trails Challenge fundraiser!

In honor of the park's birthday, and to kickstart trail renovations, the Trails Challenge -- which challenges hikers and equestrians to explore all 150 miles of trails -- is a benefit for the Trails Trust.
