Santa Cruz Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Whether you have a weekend or full week at your disposal, the Santa Cruz National Recreational Trail can likely accommodate—or at least factor in—your plans. This venerable 21-mile route begins after a short walk on an OHV route, and climbs and drops and then climbs some more all the way to Mission Pine Ridge."
