SUMMIT ONE OF THESE CALIFORNIA MOUNTAINS! Looking for Your Next Outdoor Adventure?

MOUNT TAMALPAIS Located just north of the Bay Area in Mt. Tamalpais State Park, this mountain trail is accessible for all ages and for anyone wanting to hike, climb, boulder, or just go for a stroll. MOUNT DILLER For something a little farther out of town, you could head to Mount Diller. Located in Lassen Volcanic National Park, this mountain may be rocky and snowy for most of the year, but visitors can still reach the peak just by walking. No serious climbing necessary. SAN JACINTO PEAK If you’re willing to make the long trip down to Southern California, San Jacinto Peak’s views will be more than worth it. Towering 10,000 feet above sea level, anyone who makes it to the top will get an unobstructed panoramic view of the Inland Empire, Coachella Valley, the Salton Sea, and beyond.
