      The park has 34 miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails winding through coastal terraces and valleys. Several restored buildings once belonging to the Wilder family are preserved. The park has tours and living history demonstrations to help visitors explore the history of early ranchers and farmers along the Central Coast.

      This is the goto place when you first come to explore the trails of Santa Cruz county. It offers some nice redwood forested single track and gorgeous ocean views of Monterey Bay and the Pacific Ocean.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
