Old Cove Landing Trail/Wilder Ranch SP, Davenport

Directions: Take highway 1 south from half moon bay past ano nuevo, through davenport to wilder ranch state park, about 2 miles north of santa cruz (watch for the brown state park sign). From santa cruz, drive north on highway 1 about a mile past western drive, ranch is west of the highway

Trail Information: Excellent coastal trail along the cliffs of the pacific ocean.. can do a 5-mile out and back (turn around at private property signs).. you can also continue up into the trails (pick up baldwin loop, enchanted loop or wilder ridge loop from the end of the coastal trail) that go inland up into the hills.. there are 33 miles of trails altogether

Miscellaneous Information: Inland trails are also used by mountain bikers but I've never had problems sharing the trails with them
