If by eternity is understood not endless temporal duration but timelessness, then he lives eternally who lives in the present.
~ Ludwig Wittgenstein
About a thirty minute drive from Santa Cruz, but so worth the drive, it is. Walk for miles and miles through the forest...see red salamanders...chubby banana slugs...waterfalls large and small...towering trees that were growing when the Ancient Romans were eating pasta in the British Isles; and much more.
The Pacific Ocean, just beyond the trees, a few more miles away. The best incentive to keep walking so as to get there before nightfall. Be careful not to step on any banana slugs!
Walking along the Skyline to Sea trail, a local Ohlone Indian makes his way towards the Pacific.
- Pros:A long hike from forest to ocean; so much beauty here
- Cons:Trails are steep in places and very slippery in winter
