  • Wilder State Ranch - our personal favorite.  Walk along the cliffs above the ocean, or take a rigorous hike in the hills.
  • Pogonip - our favorite for a quick walk with city and bay views
  • West Cliff Drive - great place to watch the surfers and ocean life
  • Grey Hound Rock - along highway 1, north of the City of Santa Cruz

San Lorenzo Valley

  • Henry Cowell Redwoods - we are so lucky to be able to walk through the redwoods.
  • Quail Hollow - check out the hikes behind the ranch house.  You can reach the top of a hill with a view of the entire Monterey Bay.
