A beautiful trail that gives you amazing views of the Santa Cruz Mountains.”

Features: Birding — Fall Colors — Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife
Family Friendly: Not too steep of a trail with great views for everyone.
This is a very easy trail to follow. Start at the main parking lot and head straight in on the Saratoga Gap Trail. There are not too many turnoffs and all are well labeled. The beginning of the trail is covered by trees, but shortly after you hit the falls area, the trail opens up to give you amazing views of the Santa Cruz Mountains. You can cut back to the parking lot for a shorter hike on some of the turnoff trails or make this a longer out and back by following the trail to the end.
