The San Andreas State Parks proud themselves in being able to provide services such as Educational Trips, Hunting Trips and Camping Trips for anyone interested.
What are those, exactly?
An Educational Trip is a way for someone to join us in treading through one of our many trails of choosing, in such trips you can relax and enjoy nature while learning about it and how to present yourself in it. Signing up is not mandatory, but advised. These trips are advised for those who cannot spend too much time on the trails and want something more relaxing and shorter.
A Camping trip organized by us is more focused on a longer period throughout the day as you'll get a chance to join rangers and learn about how to camp, where are the best locations and go along the trails to hike and experience the more unexplored areas of San Andreas. Signing up for Camping trips is advised to groups (Or going solo, we don't mind!) who want to go a bit more in depth on experiencing our trails by coming along on more expanded activities throughout the period of one or two days.
