Even if you've never been backpacking before,
we can help you learn!
The core Team Leaders each have hundreds of hours of backpacking in the wilderness, and National Parks like Yosemite.

We have all done several week long or better treks, we all have been trained and have then taught the finer points of backpacking: meal preparation and planning, personal equipment, clothing selection, maps & compass, GPS, trip planning, wilderness etiquette, packing light, orientation, photography, 'Leave No Trace' and Wilderness First Aid.

The Central Valley Backpacking and Hiking Club was founded in Dec. 2009, is a non-commercial group, and run entirely by unpaid volunteers and dedicated to the enjoyment of nature and wilderness through hiking & backpacking.
We are NOT an outfitter, nor are we a guide service. It is a co-operative for hiking and backpacking.
The principle of a group like ours is that you benefit by having fellowship with other like minded folks and for companionship.



If all slots are taken, you can still put in for a 'Standby' position if anyone chooses to cancel their slot.
