    Join the Rainbow Sierrans on a 3-day camping trip to Salt Point State Park on the Sonoma Coast.  

    Salt Point State Park is located 30 minutes north of Jenner on Route 1.  The Park covers 6000 acres with 6 miles of rocky coastline featuring secluded coves, fascinating tafoni rock formations, and spectacular views and sunsets.


    The Park offers 20 miles of hiking trails that offer options of hiking along the coastal bluffs or inland to a pygmy forest.   Other activities include beach combing, tide pooling, or visiting Fort Ross State Historic Park a few miles to the south.

    The club will offer a variety of organized hikes of different lengths/difficulty, and evening activities will include a pot-luck and other activities depending on interests of the group...Game night? Sing-along?  Dance party?  We will be camping at Warren Group Site.  This site offers picnic tables, fire ring with grills,  potable water, and restrooms.  Parking will be limited; carpooling is highly encouraged. There are no showers at the campground.  The trip leaders are Paget Valentzas and Michelle Trudeau.

    Registration Opens July 30, 2022 at 8am

     Bayview Trail

    Join our group camp for 25 people at Sugar Pine State Park (elevation 6220 ft near Tahoma, CA.). With nearly two miles of lake frontage, the park has dense forests of pine, fir, aspen and juniper.   Our campground is perfectly located on the west shore of Lake Tahoe, ten miles south of Tahoe City on Highway 89.  It is 1/4 mile walk from the parking lot to the lakeshore. Summer temperatures are typical for the mountains, ranging from 75-80 degrees during the day to the low 40s at night.  


    Hikes and Activities:  Trip leaders will arrange an assortment of different levels of hiking activities for the group.  Our camp is close to some of the best hiking Lake Tahoe has to offer- you will not be disappointed! Additionally, people can check out lake activities (kayaking, SUPing) and historic area tours.  Lake Tahoe is considered to be one of the most spectacular lakes (and mountain settings) in the country.

    Rainbow Sierrans camping trips also feature a potluck dinner on Saturday evening, and camaraderie around our  propane fire pits- bring your musical instruments and favorite games too.


    Trip leaders are Jenna Slovis, Kim Luce and Marian Stainbrook.


    We hope you will join us for what promises to be a wonderful extended weekend in a magical location.
