Tips from locals
my favorite local park. Beautiful forest and no crowds. You can park at the old Mt. Madonna Inn along highway 152 for free access to the park.
Mount Madonna park is a pretty drive up to the ridge above Watsonville, and is a nice place to ramble around and see the woods. There is a 1 mile loop that goes around the foundation of an early cattle baron's summer home.
Explore hundreds of hiking trails in the redwoods. Check out the infamous white deer.
Beautiful Park atop the Santa Cruz Mountains, great for hiking and horseback riding. Just minutes away.
