trail or area
Learn about desert wildlife or coastal animals on short, self-guided nature trails -- or tackle all or portions of the grueling Pacific Crest trail. You'll find both types of trails on public lands that BLM manages in California.
Between these extremes, you can find dozens of one-day adventures, from the badlands to the lush sloughs near picturesque Arcata. You´ll find trails for hiking, horseback riding, or mountain biking, plus off-highway vehicle trails or areas.
Along the way, take plenty of pictures but leave only footprints as you visit some of California's most remote but rewarding scenery.
