Retreat Among the Redwoods

Retreat Among the Redwoods

November 05, 2017

Bring yourself back while walking alongside giant redwoods and listening to the scurry of sweet, tiny animals. There truly is nothing like a day in the woods. In a place like California, it is impossible to escape the nature-driven style of the city. While visiting Santa Cruz, make sure you set aside some time to peel yourself away from the beach and on to the trail. Dream Inn is surrounded by incredible state parks such as Quail Hollow Ranch and DeLaveaga Park, that are a quick car ride away. Novice hikers welcome, it truly is no major feat to walk along these trails, but beware to mind your step as you may be distracted from the tall trees that tower over you! Stop by the Santa Cruz Parks and Recreation website to find the trail that best fits your vacation style — you may even surprise yourself — many people stay in the redwoods for a while.
