CASPBA: In Pursuit of Perseids

August 13 - August 14

$125

California State Parks Backpacking (CASPBA)

Who better to lead you through our parks than California State Park professionals? Travel from spectacular ridgelines, through old growth redwood forests, to sandy shores with our knowledgeable team of backcountry naturalists. Imagine if the Santa Cruz Mountains could speak, and the stories they could tell. We will share the secrets of this precious wilderness and give you a window into the lives of the people who lived here for thousands of years.


Registration opens Wednesday February 1, 2017 at 8 am

On this 1 night, 2 day trip journey up to Butano Ridge and watch shooting stars in the quiet and darkness of the backcountry. While the highlight of this exploration is the meteor shower, daylight brings panoramic ocean and mountain views as you hike through redwood forests and chaparral-covered ridgelines in this lesser-known park.
