State Adventure: California



The state of California is one of the best places on the planet for outdoor adventures. The Pacific Coast state is widely known for it’s perfect weather, lavish wildlife, and beautiful beaches, but there is a lot more to the Golden State that people should explore. 

Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park


Think giant trees and huge canyons and that’s exactly what you’d encounter at these parks. Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park lie side by side in the southern Sierra Nevada, east of the San Joaquin Valley. Inside these parks, you can experience a remarkable array of elevations from warm foothills to cold high-altitude mountains. You will also find diverse plants and animals living in tremendously different environments growing next to the giant sequoias and growing throughout the park. This park is the perfect destination for camping, biking, hiking, photography and more.

California Caverns


Are you afraid of dark or tight spaces? This California destination might be a little scary for some. The California Caverns are limestone caves in the Sierra Nevada foothills in Calaveras County, California. These eerie caves have been amusing visitors since the 1850s and feature a mesmerizing path with beautiful crystal arrangements in old and newly untouched areas. These cave systems are perfect for hiking, amazing photos, and great guided tours.

Shipwreck Hike


Most Southern California locals are unaware of this short hiking trail near Los Angeles. It has been there for more than fifty years and is right off the coast. If you can tolerate the steep, rocky, and uneven terrain throughout a hike, you need to go explore the remnants of the SS Dominator. Today you can access the wreckage by heading down to the intersection of Paseo Del Mar and Flat Rock Point in Palos Verdes. Once you reach the wreckage site, you’ll be treated to picturesque coastal views, beautiful tide pools, huge rock foundations, and of course the remnants of the beast itself. The shipwreck hike is somewhat challenging, but definitely worth the experience.

California holds strong to its reputation and is above the rest when it comes to camping, hiking, biking, and all around great outdoor adventures. Tune in next week for another state adventure series post and don’t forget to share with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and use #HaveNoLimits.
