Best hiking in Southern California | Wind Wolves Preserve
We spot coyotes, elk, and some very energetic ground squirrels during a 12-mile hike at the Wind Wolves Preserve, a grassland and wildlife corridor between the California Coast Ranges and Sierra Nevada. In true #BadHikers fashion, we miss the sign saying the gate locks at 5 p.m. Brittany loses her mind over some wild melons and Andy puts his problem solving skills to the test.

WHO ARE YOU? AND WHY ARE YOU BAD AT HIKING?
We’re Andy and Brittany. We live in Los Angeles with our two cats, Prius and Tumbleweed. Andy is pretty proficient at surviving in nature. Brittany is a reformed indoor kid who just learned how to use a map. Together, we’re seeing where our feet will take us.
The goal of this channel is to show you there’s no such thing as being bad at hiking―it’s all about the journey! As long as you stay safe, leave no trace, and remember to have fun, any hike is a worthy adventure.
