Backpacking Urban California is the final episode of the season and it sees host, Eric Hanson, leaving the backcountry to discover urban hiking adventures in the cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco, California.

We slowly plodded our way up the mountain, navigating the treacherous Devil’s Backbone where the mountain falls steeply on both sides of the trail. As the day wore on, Casey and I eventually made it to the top to celebrate. I couldn’t believe I was standing over 10,000 feet with L.A. east of me and the Mojave Desert to the west. To the north, the San Gabriels continued on, quietly assuring me that L.A. has more adventure in store than I could have guessed.” – Eric Hanson, The Adventurous Side of San Francisco and L.A.
