Santa Cruz Things To Do

Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park in Santa Cruz, California

Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park is located just north of Santa Cruz. The park is open to the public for nature hikes, bicycling, river kayaking, fishing, horseback riding and even a train ride passes through the beautiful Redwood Grove. The hiking trails range in difficulty, but most are easy to walk and perfect for families of all all ages. Douglas fir, oak, madrone and a stand of ponderosa pine present a picture perfect experience much as travelers would have seen 200 years ago. The tallest tree in the park is about 285′ tall and 16′ wide. The oldest trees in the park are about 1400 to 1800 years old. With over 20 miles of riding and hiking trails, a picnic area above the San Lorenzo River and steelhead and salmon during the winter, this oasis near the ocean is one of the region’s prized possessions. One thing is clear, Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park is a testament to the beauty of Santa Cruz County. Its Redwood forest has survived climate changes, logging efforts, and remains one of the oldest living monuments to a beautiful place where forests meet the beach.
