Backbone Trail

In June of 2016, I was excited to learn that the final portions of the Backbone Trail were completed – linking Will Rogers State Park in Santa Monica to Point Mugu in Ventura in one continuous trail. After reading and researching the trail for almost a year, I determined that with a lot of training, planning, and hard work, it would be possible for me to hike the entire 69 mile length over the course of 4 days.

I could not have done the hike without the support of my fiancé, family, and friends. I am posting some information here on my blog to share my experiences with them and others who are interested in learning more about this amazing trail right in the backyard of Los Angeles.
