Loch Lomond

The Place


There is no prettier lake around than Loch Lomond Reservoir, a jewel set in the Santa Cruz Mountains, complete with an island and circled by conifers. There are 12 miles of trails, 5.5 miles of them will experience the impact of our collective feet.


Getting There

Directions: From San Jose: Take Hwy 17 South to Scotts Valley. Take the Mount Herman Road exit and drive west 3.5 miles to Graham Hill Road. Turn left and drive 2 stop lights to East Zayante Rd. Turn left and drive 2.5 miles to Lompico Rd. Turn left and drive 1.5 miles West Dr. Turn left and go 0.75 miles to Sequoia Dr. Turn right and continue to park entrance. We will be meeting at the parking lot near the boat ramp.

Drive Time 1 Hour - Parking $4 - Dogs OK on leash


Walking the Walk

We will be taking the Loch Lomond Loop. We will start on the Loch Trail along the lakeshore for 1.5 miles out to Deer Flat. There we turn uphill on Highland Trail, climbing and looping at a moderate ascent which peaks out at a remote weather station.
Here we will find a sweeping view of the lake, surrounding forest and mountains.
