up into the mountains from Saratoga on hwy #9 you will reach Saratoga Gap junction at the top of
the coastal ridge.
From here you can turn both north or south into hwy #35 or
you can keep going down on hwy 9 all the way to Santa Cruz.
What? : This
junction parking lot (hwy 9 & 35) can be the starting point for few hiking
or biking trip (most of them are “in and out”).

long trail with overnight options start from Saratoga Gap junction through Big
Basin Redwoods State Park all the way to the ocean (Waddell Beach at hwy #1).
very nice trail going in some large redwood sections and it is all downhill…

is currently close so please check in advance if the trail is open
