To enhance the outdoor experiences for all Club members with the
objective of companionship, shared knowledge, and personal growth
through participation of hiking and backpacking.
Our group is composed of like-minded individuals for the enjoyment of
outdoor activities. Outings will be by consensus and inspired through our
core values that are fitness focus, health oriented, and by ability.
Planned and coordinated self-paced treks will be offered on a first come
first served basis and supported on multiple levels through training and trail
supervision. There will be no limitation on activities – picnics, 'Family Camp',
Day Hikes and weekend or full week (or more) wilderness outings – for
beginners or advanced members based solely on agreement.

|The Central Valley Backpacking Club was founded in Dec. 2009,
it is non-profit, and run entirely by unpaid volunteers and
dedicated to the enjoyment of nature and wilderness through
hiking & backpacking
We are NOT an outfitter or a guide service.
It is a co-operative for hiking and backpacking.
The principle of a group like ours is that you benefit by having fellowship
with other like minded folks and for companionship.
