Always Forward, Never Back! - St. Junipero Serra
June 23-July 1
(2023 Registration Closes on May 31)
Walk in the footsteps of St Junipero Serra along the beautiful California Coast and be forever transformed through a unique encounter with God, others, and self! The Camino will go from Mission Santa Clara to the tomb of St Junipero Serra at Mission Carmel for the celebration of his feast day.
The Camino consists almost entirely of pedestrian trails through redwood forests and along the Pacific Coast, with the exception of a couple small roads. It includes Los Gatos Creek Trail, Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, Monterey Bay Beaches, and the Monterey Peninsula Trail.
Camino Serra is not for the faint of heart! We will be backpacking the entire way and sleeping on parish hall floors. For those who prefer, you may find your own accommodations – see hotel suggestions for each night in the itinerary section.
