From the redwood forests of Muir Woods, to the historic fortifications on the Presidio Bluffs, to the coastal bluffs of Mori Point, the Golden Gate National Parks support a vast array of landscapes and sites.

In honor of the National Park Service Centennial in 2016, more than one hundred backpackers (70 of them youth participants) trekked from Jul 21-24 through these parklands, exploring the sites and stories along the way and sharing the joys of outdoor adventure.

The participants were supported by a range of park partners and youth advocates, who joined them on various legs of this journey. On the final day, the 2 teams converged on Crissy Field for a public celebration.
