Au programme

We'll begin with an introduction to each other and the map of the park, then begin hiking on a well-used dirt road in the open sunshine. After about 20 minutes, we'll drop onto a single-track, heavily-forested trail where we most likely will not see other people. I'll stop frequently to point out various interesting flora and fauna; maybe we'll even see a banana slug! We'll take time to silently listen to the sounds of the forest and leave a hope, wish or prayer in a rock garden. Along the way you will learn how this redwood forest re-grew after being clear-cut in the mid 1800's to fuel lime kilns to extract lime out of limestone. We’ll cross several small streams - all spring fed - and visit a natural spring. I'll point out the different types of terrain and the types of plants that grow in each and I promise a few surprises along the way!
Other things to note
Dress in layers. Wear sturdy hiking boots and long pants with socks. There is no restroom anywhere in the park. Dogs on leash are welcome – please be prepared to clean up after your dog. If my dates/times do not work for you and you want a tour, please feel free to contact me and I'll work with you.

As an avid hiker and lover of nature, I have lived in Santa Cruz for almost 30 years and have hiked the better part of the Santa Cruz side of the mountain range. Being in the forest gives me a sense of belonging and rejuvenation. Especially after traveling, being in nature can de-stress you in ways that nothing else can.

I adore Santa Cruz and I’d like to share the part of it that most tourists never see. I will tell you about the local flora and fauna, and give some insider history and perspectives about Santa Cruz in general. If you like to hike but don't want to have to pay attention to trail maps and worry about getting lost, this is a great way to experience a beautiful section of the Santa Cruz mountains

Le lieu

I’ll meet you at the end of Spring Street off High Street. After a brief introduction, we’ll hike along a hillside with a beautiful view of Santa Cruz. Then, after about a mile, the trail will take us into the redwood forest. Along the way we will see a secret rock garden, an ancient lime kiln and an active spring . Prepare for three hours of active hiking with two small breaks.

We had a wonderful experience hiking with Dianne! We had asked her to start the hike later that her usual time to accommodate for traffic in the morning. Dianne was super flexible. Our family of four (2 teenagers and parents) really enjoyed the hike with her. It wasn’t too strenuous even though it got pretty warm at the end. Dianne shared stories and insides with us about the place. She showed us a few places I’m sure we wouldn’t have discovered easily on our own. We can highly recommend the experience!

It was such a pleasure hiking with Dianne! If I were to have hiked alone, I would’ve missed out in the intricate details that surrounded me on the hike as well as the interesting history. Dianne is a very altruistic soul, I felt very honored to have met her and shared stories together. The hike and location itself was amazing as I’ve hiked parts of that area but was happy to explore even deeper into the area. I highly recommend booking a hiking trip with Dianne!

I had family visiting for the Holidays. We decided to go for this hike.None of us were very experienced hikers. All of us had a wonderful experience with Dianne. We were a mixed group with teenagers, students etc. Each one of us loved the hike with Dianne. It was done at our own pace- we stopped to ask Dianne about the trees that we saw. We all learnt things we didn't know. I would highly recommend this hike
