California Hiking

California, a western U.S. state, stretches from the Mexican border along the Pacific for nearly 900 miles. Its terrain includes cliff-lined beaches, redwood forest, the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Central Valley farmland and the Mojave Desert. You can stroll along beautiful coastlines, summit 14,000-foot peaks, or hike up desert canyons. California has so many well maintained trails!
