Hiking Uvas Canyon County Park, Alec Canyon & Waterfall Loop

Uvas Canyon County Park: Alec Canyon & Waterfall Loop

Nestled in the eastern Santa Cruz Mountains between Morgan Hill and Watsonville is Uvas Canyon County Park. With Swanson Creek flowing year-round and tall hills, this is a great place for some mellow and scenic hiking away, but not away, from civilization. You can hit miles of trails and still be back in time for brunch. I met up with my longtime Instagram friend, Christian Arballo, and set off to explore some trails in this new-to-us park!

Hiking Big Ben Loop, Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park

Henry Cowell State Park: Big Ben Loop #winehike

The redwoods are always my favorite place to escape in inclement weather. There’s nothing quite like hiking under the protection of dense branches towering way above, being tickled by little bits of rain, and listening to roaring creeks.

When Wine Hiker heard that An Epic Adventurer was coming to town, he made wine hiking plans, lickety split and invited Chasqui Mom (and #outfam) and I along!
