Sometimes carrying a loaded backpack up a steep Sierra pass is the easy part of the trip.  
Outdoor trip logistics can certainly be difficult, especially if you're the leader.

At South Bay Trekking Company, we have years of experience developing and following
formulas for successful outings.  Trips that typically have the most complex logistics are
multi-day backpacking trips with a group.  Although this is what we specialize in, feel free to
contact us on ideas for day trips, hikes, mountain biking, ocean kayaking,
snowshoe/backcountry skiing, or just general wilderness advice.

Give us a call or an e-mail and see if our trip consultation is appropriate for your group.  We
can provide a detailed quote of what we can accomplish and approximately how long it will
take.  Below are some common trip planning tasks for a multi-day backpacking trip and
approximate number of hours.

Our standard rate is $60 per hour of Trip Planning Consultation.

Our mission: To explore, educate, and sustain.
