Along the Slopes

Trail Thoughts and Musings

The first section along the Saratoga Gap trail is an easy traverse that contours along the oak filled slopes of the Santa Cruz mountains. It is a gentle journey through meadow grass and tight clusters of oak and madrone trees. In the summer this can be a hot hike and in winter the trail might be pelted with rain.
