Description

Although titled "Chinquapin Trail," this is a dirt road.

At the Eucalyptus Trail connector, enjoy a nice break at the picnic tables with amazing views of the Wilder Ranch Coast and the Pacific Ocean below. Chinquapin connects upper campus with the State Park making for great loops with all of the good stuff Santa Cruz highlights.
