This trail map covers the parks of the Santa Cruz area. One side includes Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, Wilder Ranch State Park, Pogonip, and the University of California at Santa Cruz. The other side has the Forest of Nisene Marks State Park and Soquel Demonstration State Forest.

All official hiking trails were drawn from newly-acquired GPS data with a resolution of about 100 feet. Memorial grove markers, footbridges, panoramic viewpoints, and stairs are shown. Most roads are shown and labeled. In addition, unofficial trails and dirt roads are shown and are greyed out to distinguish them from official hiking trails. We don’t recommend that you use these trails, but if you accidentally wander onto one, having it on the map will help you get back on track.

Wooded areas are indicated in green, old growth redwoods in dark green, and developed areas in grey. 40 foot contour lines are included and trail distances are marked. A UTM grid is provided to help with GPS navigation.

The second edition now includes the new Flow Trail in Soquel Demonstration State Forest as well as the mile markers recently added to Hihn’s Mill Road. Also, the map is now printed on tear-resistant waterproof plastic.
