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. Visitors can marvel in the power of nature as they walk through this recovering forest that was once exploited for the logging industry. 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. Nestled away in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park is home to a 40-acre grove of old-growth redwoods. Some of these magnificent trees tower more than 250 feet and are more than 1,500 years old. You can truly begin to understand the power of the natural world around us as you walk through these impressive redwoods. If you’re still feeling a little mystified, you can spend some time at the nearby Bigfoot Discovery Museum.
