This hike explores the deep folds and rocky heights of Castle Rock State Park, perched up on the ridge of the Santa Cruz mountain range between the urban centers of San Jose and Santa Cruz. The dense oak forest of the park is studded with large granite outcrops that local rock climbers find irresistible. The park’s namesake Castle Rock is marked by strange honeycomb formations, but it is Goat Rock that provides the best views.
