Parks and OutdoorsExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park is well loved for its campground, Roaring Camp Railroad steam trains, and especially the enchanted redwood groves. While most visitors just walk the 0.75-mile Redwood Loop Trail by the visitor center to see the big trees, more serious hikers can follow a 6.5-mile loop to the Observation Deck, Big Rock Hole, and Cathedral Redwoods.
  • Anglers can try their luck at various spots in the San Lorenzo River. Bicyclists can pedal the Pipeline Road without having to share the road with cars. No cars are allowed.
  • Train lovers shouldn't miss the chance to ride the narrow-gauge Roaring Camp Railroad. One-hour tours on the 1890s steam trains cruise the redwood forest and cross the San Lorenzo River on tall trestles. Three-hour tours travel to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and back.
