The Great Outdoors

Just to the east of Capitola near Aptos, The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park is made up of more than 10,000 acres of quiet forests and rugged topography.

Today, Nisene Marks thrives and welcomes visitors with 30 miles of trails and challenges visitors with mountain climbs of up to 2,600 feet.

Just on the eastern side of Santa Cruz is Wilder Ranch State Park. Situated along the coast, Wilder Ranch is a near perfectly preserved dairy ranch from the late 1800s. You can learn about the late 1800s in agricultural California as you spend time in the various farmhouses and barns. Once you’ve fully appreciated your jump back in time, you can head to the cliff side trails or through the small redwood forest.

Drive your Capitola RV rental about 10 miles northwest of town to the breathtaking Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park near Felton.
