From the ridgeline spine of the Santa Cruz Mountains, the Skyline-tothe- Sea Trail descends through lush woodlands, passes sweeping vistas, lines crystalline streams, explores old-growth redwood forest, visits beautiful waterfalls, and then reaches the Pacific Ocean at Waddell Beach. It may be the best-known backpacking trip in the Bay Area, but the scenery and adventure are irresistibly epic.
