View of Alpine Pond

Trail Thoughts and Musings

Having returned to the parking lot, the short walk to Alpine Pond is well worth the small effort involved. Follow the trail which goes under Alpine Road by use of a tunnel and then heads downhill to the pond. The setting feels more like being in the Sierra rather than the coastal Santa Cruz mountains. A small nature center is present but is usually only open weekends.
