The beautiful UCSC campus with lots of walking trails is only 5 minutes by car

"City on a Hill" is how the campus is described. Situated in some of the most lovely forest and pasture land in the area. Views of the bay are unrivaled.

the campus is set in the redwoods. the drives departing the campus offer great views of the city and across monterey bay. can be combined with hiking on the upper campus and/or the pogo nip park below campus at the end of spring st.

The campus is gorgeous with all the trees, campus building and life situated on rolling hills. There are events there and an Arboretum.
