hike in the woods

There aren’t many places to take dogs hiking around Silicon Valley. One of the few good places is Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, in the mountains just north of Santa Cruz.

A couple times this spring, Nancy and I took Hank and Maggie for a hike along the one dog-friendly hiking trail. One time, we were joined by Eric and Edwin, with Eric taking a break from programming and Edwin taking a break from home improvement projects :-).

The trail follows a river part of the way and is mostly in the shade of redwoods, so it would be comfortable even in summer most of the time, although there are some quite steep places. There’s a scenic overlook at the high point of the trail that looks down the valley to Santa Cruz and the ocean. More importantly :-) there are some nice benches to rest on.
