Helmed by seasoned instructors armed with years of outdoor-adventure-guide training, Treks and Tracks leads kids aged 8 and older through the slopes and peaks of Malibu Creek State Park or Castle Rock State Park. During the excursions, students ascend beginner-level terrain as guides impart climbing theory and technical tips, such as how to avoid paying tolls to mountain goats. As they safely grapple with gravity, climbers practice fundamental rock-scaling movements, climbing knots, and climbing commands as well as basic belaying skills on the park’s knobby volcanic-rock walls. Guides outfit their protégés with all necessary gear, including climbing shoes, helmets, harnesses, and belay devices.

Treks and Tracks

Surrounded by craggy peaks, three men in bright-red helmets stand in the midst of wilderness, surveying the mountains around them as their group of hikers break for a snack on the rocky ground. This interface with the majesty of nature is all in a day's work for this trio of adventurers—Paul Mangasarian and Jakob and Daniel Laggner. Still, their passion for open-air exploration grows with each expedition they lead. Paul, Jakob, and Daniel cofounded Treks and Tracks with the dream of orchestrating excursions into nature that combine ancient means of travel—such as sailing, horseback riding, and hitchhiking on a centaur—with modern sports ranging from surfing to rock climbing. Though they focus on introducing novice outdoorsfolk to unspoiled wilderness around the world, Treks and Tracks' cofounders also strive to leave the awe-inspiring surroundings they visit as pristine as they found them by rigorously upholding practices of environmental stewardship on each expedition.
