10th Annual Stroller Hikes Camping Trip at Bravo Ranch in Soquel


It’s coming!  It’s time to start planning for the annual camping tripIMG_1911. The trip will be from Friday, July 29th to Sunday, July 31st.  Families can stay one or two nights – just let us know which is your preference when you pay for your reservation.  Families need to bring their own tents, sleeping supplies, and personal supplies.  This private ranch is wonderfully family friendly, with a creek to play in, farm animals, a garden, a playground, crafts, and more!

 The Bravo Ranch Camping Trip is Stroller Hikes’ annual fundraiser.  In the past we have priced the donation per family, but we are shifting this year to a per-person amount.

Ages two and under = FREE

Ages 3 to 5 = $7 per night

Everyone else = $9 per night


During the trip, each family is required to:

Bring some food and/or supplies (these are assigned)

Complete camp-related tasks (e.g. washing dishes)

This is a very well organized trip that is more luxury camping than roughing it (we even have showers and a toilet). The trip will likely sell out before the Spring, so don’t wait to reserve.  Donations will not be reimbursed if families cancel. Donations will be reimbursed if we sell out before your donation is submitted.  You can reserve by paying admin@strollerhikes.com through PayPal or by mailing a check to Stroller Hikes, c/o Rebecca Taylor, 1675 Faraday Ct San Jose, CA 95124-4701.  When you donate, please indicate:

When your family will attend (e.g. Friday to Sunday)

If you have food limitations (we have 2 communal meals/day)

The names of the people in your family

The ages of your children

Happy 2016!

My family celebrated our 1st snow filled New Year’s Eve with winter hikes, warm marshmallows and lots of wet clothes.  Now that we are back in the Bay Area, my boys insist on wearing their newly acquired winter boots for our rainy day hikes.  We may have packed away the winter jackets but we are still enjoying the winter weather!

We hope all of our Stroller Hikes families had a great holiday weekend and we look forward to seeing you at an upcoming hike this new year!

Finish Strong


As we tie a bow around 2015 we’d like to encourage you all the finish the year strong! I love this picture of my two girls pumped up and ready for a hike. I have a similar feeling after conquering the transition from home to hike. Loading the kids in the car can sometimes feel draining but upon arrival at our hike destination we quickly feel rejuvenated and ready to explore. Stroller Hikes are now a part of our weekly family ritual. We leave the hike with a new friend or have time with old friends and always feeling stronger than when we started. Don’t miss this week’s event for your chance to finish strong too!
