Neler yapacaksınız

We'll begin with an introduction to each other and the map of the park, then begin hiking on a well-used dirt road in the open sunshine.

After about 20 minutes, we'll drop onto a single-track, heavily-forested trail where we most likely will not see other people. I'll stop frequently to point out various interesting flora and fauna; maybe we'll even see a banana slug! We'll take time to silently listen to the sounds of the forest and leave a hope, wish or prayer in a rock garden. Along the way you will learn how this redwood forest re-grew after being clear-cut in the mid 1800's to fuel lime kilns to extract lime out of limestone. You'll get to see a lime kiln along the way.

We’ll cross several small streams - all spring fed and easy to cross - and visit a natural spring. I'll point out the different types of terrain and the types of plants that grow in each and I promise a few surprises along the way!

Other things to note: Dress in layers. Wear sturdy hiking boots or walking shoes and long pants with socks. There is no restroom anywhere in the park. Dogs on leash are welcome – please be prepared to clean up after your dog. If my dates/times do not work for you and you want a tour, please feel free to contact me and I'll work with you.

As an avid hiker and lover of nature, I have lived in Santa Cruz for almost 30 years and have hiked the better part of the Santa Cruz side of the mountain range. Being in the forest gives me a sense of belonging and rejuvenation. Especially after traveling, being in nature can de-stress you in ways that nothing else can.

I adore Santa Cruz and I’d like to share the part of it that most tourists never see. I will tell you about the local flora and fauna, and give some insider history and perspectives about Santa Cruz in general. If you like to hike but don't want to have to pay attention to trail maps and worry about getting lost, this is a great way to experience a beautiful section of the Santa Cruz mountains

Nerede olacaksınız?

I’ll meet you at the end of Spring Street off High Street. After a brief introduction, we’ll hike along a hillside with a beautiful view of Santa Cruz. Then, after about a mile through scrubby grassland, the trail will take us into the redwood/mixed conifer forest. Along the way we will see a secret rock garden, an ancient lime kiln and an active spring . Prepare for three hours of active hiking with two small breaks.

we had a great time. Dianne was great and flexible. We msg her before schedule and she open up time and accommodate to our needs. She is friendly, easy-going, knowledgeable, thoughtful. She made little things that made our trip special and memorable.

Beautiful and interesting. Dianne was a great guide and led us through a wonderful hike. Our day started with drizzle but the sun prevailed. Careful…lots of poison oak.

We had a wonderful experience hiking with Dianne! We had asked her to start the hike later that her usual time to accommodate for traffic in the morning. Dianne was super flexible. Our family of four (2 teenagers and parents) really enjoyed the hike with her. It wasn’t too strenuous even though it got pretty warm at the end. Dianne shared stories and insides with us about the place. She showed us a few places I’m sure we wouldn’t have discovered easily on our own. We can highly recommend the experience!

It was such a pleasure hiking with Dianne! If I were to have hiked alone, I would’ve missed out in the intricate details that surrounded me on the hike as well as the interesting history. Dianne is a very altruistic soul, I felt very honored to have met her and shared stories together. The hike and location itself was amazing as I’ve hiked parts of that area but was happy to explore even deeper into the area. I highly recommend booking a hiking trip with Dianne!
