Wine Country Trekking provides luxury European style hiking vacations from the gateway city of San Francisco to the California Wine Country with a focus on superb hiking, lodging, food and wine.
Our treks are designed for the discerning, active traveler. They are located in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area and include premier lodging, daily hikes between inns and private winery appointments. The hikes are designed for the traveler to explore the most beautiful and interesting sights the area has to offer. The inns are chosen not only for comfort, but for their beautiful rooms, natural settings and proximity to fine dining.
Enjoy our 5 day/4 night special runner's trek. This vacation was inspired by the custom trek we designed for Runner's World magazine. The trek traverses the beautiful trails of Marin County and Mount Tamalpais, "arguably the country's best trail running". Of course, these same trails are lovely to hike as well! You will see and experience Sausalito and Muir Woods National Monument, and end at the edge of Point Reyes National Seashore park. It is also possible to customize this trek, adding a day at the beginning and starting in San Francisco or a day at the end, running through Point Reyes and finishing in Inverness.
The trek includes 3 days of running or hiking 9 miles (14 km). Each night you will stay in premier lodging, ranging from charming country inns to luxury boutique hotels, and have opportunities for excellent dining.
