People don’t usually think of redwoods when they think of Año Nuevo State Park, but this park is full of surprises, and you will walk among redwoods on this trail. This 2 ½ mile out-and-back trail climbs steeply through redwood forest, gaining 800 feet in elevation in a little over a mile to achieve spectacular viewpoints looking west over Año Nuevo Point, Franklin Point, and Pigeon Point, and east into deep, forested canyons. Feel the burn—then enjoy the Taste of the Region at the Workshop guilt-free.

Tour the grounds of the historic and picturesque Pigeon Point Lighthouse and view the 16-foot high Fresnel lens which guided mariners to safety beginning in 1872. Then, explore the rich diversity of intertidal life along the rocky shore during an excellent low tide. While you are studying the anemones, crabs and sea stars, remember to look up from time to time—Pigeon Point in March is a prime spot to watch grey whales in migration! Access to the tide pools requires descending stairs and traversing uneven, slippery terrain. The meeting location for this event is at the flagpole inside the park.

Join the staff and docents of the Santa Cruz Mission for a living history demonstration and a thought-provoking conversation, and prepare to share and learn best practices and new approaches to cultural history interpretation.

Elephant Seals! What more do you need to know? Join Park Interpreter Mike Merritt to look for pups hauled out on the beach and learning to swim in the intertidal zone, along with adults lingering before returning to the sea. Along the way, Mike will describe the top-notch volunteer program he maintains and the extensive training his docents receive. The walk is 1 ½ - 2 hours long and covers a walking distance of 3 miles over varied terrain, including sand dunes. Weather at Año Nuevo can be cold, wet and windy. We advise that you dress warmly and wear sturdy walking shoes and bring rain gear and a hat. Bring your binoculars and camera too! No food or drink may be consumed on the trail, but you can bring snacks to eat before or after the walk. The meeting location for this hike is at the picnic tables located in front of the Marine Education Building (the big white barn).
