Batona 101 Beginner Guided Hike

Start your own Batona adventure with the help of our guide!


Join us for an easy/moderate hike on the Batona Trail. We will meet near Carranza Memorial and pick up the trail there. We’ll cover about 6 miles with an elevation gain of 135ft as we reach the Apple Pie Hill section of the trail. Let this be the start to your own Batona adventures! On this hike we’ll cover the basics of packing, hiking tempo, and weather considerations. If you have a new piece of kit you are testing out, this would be a good hike to do so.

We will mainly be walking on packed sand, but there will be areas with softer sand and/or areas that are wet. Waterproof hiking boots are the best option. Dress in layers and be prepared for the weather. Remember, it’s often chillier in the forest! Bring water, snacks, sunscreen, bug spray, and anything else that you need for a successful hike.
