Butano

The Place


Just inland from the sea, along the San Mateo coast,
Butano State Park is a hidden treasure that has breathtaking coastal redwoods, woodlands, and chaparral.


Getting There

Directions: From San Jose: Take 17 South to Hwy 1 N. and go through Santa Cruz (Mission/1 North) and out to the coast, staying on 1 N. About 25 miles north of Santa Cruz, Turn Right on Gazos Creek, bear left onto Cloverdale and turn right into the park. There are two small parking areas, one at the entrance and one at the picnic area. Try to Carpool.

Drive Time 1 hour, 30 min. - Parking $6 - Dogs Not Allowed


Walking the Walk

Although the hike is long, the elevation gain is not too steep. We meet at 10 AM at the entrance. We will start out on Jackson Flat and end up on Ano Nuevo with other trails in between. This is a long hike, so be sure to pack accordingly. Our meeting will be up on the Olmo Fire Rd, about halfway through the hike and a perfect vantage point from which to view the lovely coastal redwoods.

Level: 3.5 - Miles: 10 - Elevation: 900' - Host: Jennifer N
