My name is Robert Evans and I was raised here in the Ojai Valley. My father loved hiking and camping in our local mountains and imparted that love of nature and adventure to me. I have hiked, biked, climbed and crawled all over and I still find myself coming home with a greater appreciation of this magical place with its unique and diverse terrain. It’s truly awesome to hike one of the many mountain trails that overlook the Ojai Valley and see the Channel Islands floating like clouds on the distant horizon, to dive off a cliff into a crystal clear swimming hole, or to be surrounded by the sights and smells of majestic pine trees.
My wife Susan and I have been leading guided hikes for over 15 years. We specialize in creating hiking adventures for you and your group based upon your desires and ability. Whether you’re looking for a family friendly hike and picnic or an all-day advanced adventure we look forward to creating a magical and memorable outdoor experience just for you.
I have pictures from our past trips! To view them please click here to go to the gallery.
I’ve been kayaking lakes, oceans, and whitewater since 1980 and the Channel Islands are some of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. There is nothing to compare with floating above the kelp forests and watching the endless varieties of sea life beneath you or exploring the caves and seal rookeries along the islands shores.
Our trips are hosted by a private boat and all of your gear; kayaks (either single or double), paddles, life jackets and helmets are furnished as are the experienced guides that lead us through the wonders and mystery that are the Channel Islands.
