The Muir Coastal Adventure


Adventure Highlights

This adventure is perfect for anyone who loves hiking through the woods and enjoying sunsets on the beach.  

Hike & Shoot Explorer Adriel Callao (@norcal_exp) will lead us through both locations and give us tips on landscape and portrait composition and techniques.  He will also conduct a tutorial on light painting at sunset! 

The Muir Coastal Adventure will take us to:

  • The lush redwood forest of Muir Woods (where Return of the Jedi was filmed on Planet Endor) for an easy 3.5 mile hike along the Canopy View Trail.
