We get it: not everyone lives in a rustic cabin in the woods. But living in an urban setting isn’t a very good excuse for staying indoors, especially when you consider how close nature is to even the busiest of cities. Exposing said trails and getaways is the goal of Trail Vibes, a new video series from naturalist Charles Post that aims to explore the wilderness areas within a day’s drive from urban hubs. Filmed by Perry Gershow with stills captured by photographer Megan Haywood-Sullivan, it’s an eye-opener for concrete escapees looking for their next adventure a little closer to home. We asked Post to share some of his favorite trails and campsites with Teva to help him celebrate the series launch:


Samuel P. Taylor State Park

“Just one hour north of San Francisco, it has an amazing campground on the banks of Lagunitas Creek, which supports a healthy run of Coho salmon and steelhead trout.”


Willow Creek Environmental Campground

“Located on the Sonoma Coast, this campground is tucked away in a beautiful grove of redwoods on the banks of a small creek that runs into the ocean only a short walk from the campsite.”


Sky Camp

“It’s one of Point Reye’s best hike-in campsites. It offers sweeping views of Point Reyes and Drake’s Bay, and it’s secluded and off the beaten path a bit.”

Wildcat Camp

“Another epic Point Reyes campsite. It’s less than 20 miles from Alamere Falls, which is one of Marin County’s best waterfalls, which happens to cascade off a coastal bluff onto the sandy beach below.”


Tomales Bay State Park

“This park has a few boat-in campsites, which are epic to say the least. If you own or rent a kayak, you can access these remote campsites. Once you get there, you’ll find yourself surrounded by nature and a private coastal nook, complete with fire ring and private beach.”
