Travel by foot and experience spectacular locations. California and the Southwest are home to some of America's most amazing places. While some are accessible by car, many are only accessible by foot. Outdoor Adventures offers multiple opportunities every semester to hike and camp premiere locations along the west coast. Our program also provides the necessary equipment to accommodate every level of backpacking excursions.

Examples of locations we often visit include Mount San Gorgonio and Mount San Jacinto, which are two of southern California's highest peaks and offer amazing opportunities for backpacking. Another frequently visited site is the Pacific Crest Trail, which runs from Mexico to Canada and passes within an hour of the USD campus.
