Get Outside on Black Friday!


On Friday, Nov. 27, Hilltromper's leading a hike at Henry Cowell and Save The Redwoods League will pay your entrance fee to a redwood state park near you. #OptOutside!

by Hilltromper staff

Update: The response to Save The Redwood League's offer of free entrance to 49 redwood parks was overwhelming, and on Friday, Nov. 20 the "free pass" limit was reached on 30 parks, including Big Basin, Castle Rock, Nisene Marks, Henry Cowell, Portola Redwoods, Butano and Wilder Ranch. Free Black Friday passes are still available at 19 parks; find them at Save The Redwoods.

Nov. 19, 2015—For as long as mankind has driven to malls on the day after Thanksgiving, there's been Black Friday, the "biggest shopping day of the year." But there's a new game in town. A move is afoot to abandon the madness of the shopping malls and instead go outdoors to experience the peace and beauty of nature.

A few weeks ago, REI got the ball rolling with its #OptOutside campaign on social media, declaring that instead of raking in the dough this Nov. 27, it will close the doors of its 140 stores in the hopes that its employees—and would-be REI shoppers—spend the day outside instead.


How Brilliant Is It?

So brilliant Hilltromper's getting in on the act. We'll be leading an #OptOutside hike at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park on Friday, Nov. 27 with a knowledgeable docent. The time's TBA. But save the date and come play with us! The first 25 people to show up will get some of Hilltromper's homemade trail mix. Mmmm. Plus we'll have schwag. Watch for the exact time and details on our FB, Twitter and Instagram pages. Or find it on Hilltromper.

But Wait! There's More ...

Sempervirens Fund is signing on to the #OptOutside program. Hence these awesome "May The Forest Be With You" T-shirts, available just in time—if you hurry and order soon—for the greening of Black Friday (not to mention the release of the next Star Wars movie The Force Awakens on Dec. 18).

Anything Else? Why, Yes ...

Save The Redwoods League has upped the ante. With help from an anonymous donor to offset the $50,000 bill, Save The Redwoods is offering to pay for anyone and everyone's entrance to 49 California State Parks that feature redwood trees.

Right: free entrance—usually $8-10 a car—to all redwood state parks in California. All you have to do is go to Save The Redwoods, print the pass, and present it at the park of your choice. Wondering which parks are included? Well, Big Basin, Henry Cowell, Butano, Castle Rock and Wilder Ranch, for starters. Find the complete list here.

See you out on the trail!
