About Sand Hill Bluff in Santa Cruz, California
Sand Hill Bluff is a protected public property between Wilder Ranch State Park and Laguna Creek Beach north of Santa Cruz. In 2005, a partnership of non-profits and state agencies acquired this 154-acre property. The groups that worked together to secure this land included the Trust for Public Land (TPL), California State Parks, California Coastal Commission, Caltrans, and others.
The site is known as an important coastal archaeological site once occupied by the Ohlone people. On site there are working farms that will continue to be in operation and managed by Agri-Culture, a non-profit that educates the public about agriculture. Archaeology and research will continue as well.
There is a pristine small sandy beach on the south side of the bluff that will be accessible when the property is finally opened to the public. Let’s hope the state parks department finally gives us access to this location as it’s been years since the acquisition.
This site is located on Sand Hill Bluff behind a farm at 5511 Coast Road, Santa Cruz, CA. Just north of Sand Hill is the wide sandy beach and lagoon at Laguna Creek, a great bird-watching spot.
