The Place

Pogonip is an inspiring retreat of natural beauty, boasting of 640 acres of open meadows, woodlands, and creeks. It's multi-use trails connect Henry Cowell State Park, Pogonip, and the UCSC campus together. Purchased in 1988 with funding from CALPAW, this park is home to a combination of mixed evergreens, redwoods, and Douglas fir trees. Although this is a short hike, we will experience many microclimates on our trails.

Walking the Walk

We will start the hike from the Lookout Trail trailhead. We will take the Spring Trail to the Spring Box Trail to the Lime Kiln Trail to the Fern Trail to the Brayshaw Trail to the picnic tables near the Ranger station. If the picnic tables are not being used, well have the meeting there. If they are being used, well find someplace close by to have the meeting. In all the years weve hiked there I have never seen anyone using them, so I suspect theyll be available. After the meeting well take the Prairie Trail up to the Brayshaw Trail back to the Spring Trail and back to our starting point.
