Perfect for an easy, fun walk with the dog after work.

Redwood Forests, hills, meadows, streams, wildlife, Historic buildings and close to town. There is much to see in less than 2miles. There were several joggers, for good reason.
On the other side there's not much parking.

I hike in through Golf Club Rd. write off River st. Into wide open meadows with horses grazing; follow the trail on up into the Redwoods to the Gold Fish Pond just below UCSC!

I pooped myself :(

Too easy, lots of ticks. Never many people there, though.

Nice trail - probably more of a runner's than a hiker's layout though.

this is the small loop at the entrance of the park. nice easy hike although I like Lookout Loop a lot more.

A pleasant, easy hike with a variety of views . Trails are well marked and there several options. Beware of ticks & poison oak in summer though.

I was confused when first took this trek because i could not find a trail marked Lookout Loop. So i decided to make a loop of the park using Lookout Trail. I did this by using several trails in the park Pogonip, Lookout, Spring,Fern and then the Bradshaw Trails.

Lookout Loop Trail and the trails around it have a little bit of everything. Streams, cliffs, redwoods, prairies and some moderate hiking parts. There are two bike racks at the trail head (near Golf Club Dr), but bikes are not allowed on the trail. There are a couple trails that allowed dogs, but Lookout Loop did not.
