From Sempirvirens Fund: As thermometers and leaves drop, crisp air and leaves beckon us outside to appreciate a different side of the Santa Cruz mountains’ wild beauty - colorful leaves, sparkling creeks, migrating birds, curious mushrooms, and of course banana slugs and elephant seals. Time in the woods is not only a treat for your eyes, the refreshing air has health-boosting phytoncides that can improve our physical and mental wellbeing and help us feel connected with nature and each other.
If recent park closures have left you looking for new trails and places to enjoy the change of seasons this fall and winter, you’re in luck! Happy trails to you and please recreate responsibly!
