Santa Cruz Mountains Hiking Trails

There are many parks to explore in the Santa Cruz Mountains of central California. A very good park and  trail guide is  The Santa Cruz Mountains Trail Book  by Tom Taber, published by the Oak Valley Press 1976 – 1994.  I found a copy of it in the main branch of the Santa Cruz Public Library. 
The last few days the weather has been very warm and more like summer than winter: a good time to go out for a hike!
