The Best Backcountry Backpacking Trip in Southern California? 2 Days, 64 Creek Crossings:
No, that’s not an exaggeration: While backpacking in Los Padres National Forest, #BadHIkers cross the Manzana Creek 64 times in the quest to camp at an abandoned 127-year-old schoolhouse. Brittany is thrilled about vegan jerky, Andy makes some fish friends, and together we declare Manzana Trail Loop in Santa Barbara our favorite backpacking trip in Southern California.

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.
