Parks and OutdoorsExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Loch Lomond Reservoir is set in a Douglas fir and redwood forest in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Two and three-pound bass and small trout are abundant, and renting a boat at the marina is your best chance at catching them. The bluegill fishery is also excellent. Many anglers simply walk around the lake and fish from shore. The biggest fish reeled in, a 32-pound catfish, was caught this way.
  • A great five-mile loop hike is possible by following Loch Trail from the marina along the south shore of the lake. At 1.2 miles, Loch Trail meets up with Highland Trail, taking you all the way to the park entrance road and back down to the marina. Highland Trail offers great high views of the lake and Newell Creek Canyon.
  • The park is open only from March 1 to mid-September. Leashed dogs are allowed for a small fee.
