* EXPERIENCE HIKING DIFFERENTLY! *Our pack-free camping hike experience is a self-guided hiking experience with a twist of comfort! It lets you enjoy the thrills of camping and hiking, whilst letting us pamper you a little! These hikes include a 4WD transfer to the trailhead and a 4wd pick up at the end locations of the hike.
