A quiet forest of grand redwoods, scattered eucalyptus, and colorful acacia encases the ruins of the Miller family summer estate and the easy trails that surround them. Set on the crest of the Santa Cruz Mountains, enveloped in a deep forest that’s cooling even in a hot spell, the ruins of the summer estate built by cattle magnate Henry Miller remain a great place to pass a vacation day. Miller, a German immigrant who came to California hoping to strike it rich in the gold rush, instead made a fortune as a cattle rancher.
