When many people hear the word “California” they immediately think of the beach. It’s true that our fine state has hundreds of miles of beaches, attracting surfers and sunbathers from all over the world.

But one of the things that makes California so special is that we also have mountains. If you’re living by the beach in California but long for the clean, crisp air that only exists in the mountains, this list if for you.

As a local moving company, Out of the Box Moving Solutions has helped people relocate all over the Golden State, for many different reasons.

If you’re looking to move somewhere you can hike as well as surf, we’ve compiled a short list of amazing hiking destinations that are closer to our home in Commerce, California than you may have realized!

San Francisco

That’s right! The Bay might get all the attention, but the Bay area also offers some amazing hikes for residents who know where to look. East Bay residents have the Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve right in their backyards, while those living on the west side in Pacifica can get some killer views up on Sweeney Ridge.

Los Angeles

Don’t be confused by all the celebrities; the City of Angels also has a lot to offer those who prefer a more rugged lifestyle as well. There’s Sandstone Peak in the Santa Monica Mountains, and the Los Liones Trail to Parker Mesa that provides some of the most beautiful coastal views in all of L.A.

San Diego

Thinking about using our local moving services to relocate to San Diego? Well, if you love hiking, you’re in luck. The Torrey Pines State Reserve provides an opportunity to hike among the rarest pine tree on the North American continent, the pinus torreyana after which the park was named.
