Rating: 7/10

Directions:   View Driving Map

If you want to go: take Highway 85 south. Take Saratoga Ave. exit. Turn right; continue through downtown Saratoga (Highway 9, straight ahead). Continue up Highway 9. At the top, turn left on Skyline. The well-signed parking area is a few miles up the road, on your right.

Michelle, Cathie, Landa, Joe, Weihaw, Jenny, and I went hiking in Castle Rock State Park, near the intersection of Highway 9 and Skyline. This is one of my favorite hikes. We passed by rock climbers. In some places along the trail you can see miles and miles of trees spreading down toward Santa Cruz and the Pacific Ocean. It's a wonderful sight. Hard to believe such a view is so close to us.

The view from the trail, looking out toward the Pacific Ocean (can't see the ocean in this picture).

Returning to our cars after a fun hike. =)
