Getting out in 2023

It’s Black History Month, a time to reflect on important stories throughout our parks, from John Harris’ landmark Sutro Baths case to the Buffalo Soldiers and more. These stories are part of the reason the GGNRA is an International Site of Conscience.

Looking to get out in the parks? We’ve got hand-picked ideas for inspiration across the GGNRA, from winter redwood trips for everybody to ideas if you have limited time to picks for the whole family. With changing weather, make sure to check the latest park alerts before you go.
