Taking the Road Less Traveled

Cliff Walk in Santa Cruz

Leave a comment

In Santa Cruz, California there is a fabulous walk you should absolutely try!  Located along West Cliff Drive, this walk allows you to stroll with an ocean front view for miles. It’s easy to find, just park by the Natural Bridges State Park and you’ll see the path that curves along next to the cliffs. (Directions below) If you walk from Natural Bridges to the municipal wharf it’s about an 8 mile round-trip. Before you go, stop at your favorite coffee shop and get what my sister calls a “road joe”.  It’s a perfect walk if you’re alone (very safe) or with friends. Along the way you’ll see the lighthouse, surfer memorial and municipal wharf (lined with shops and restaurants). More photos to follow but for now this photo shows me at the start. On your mark…get set!

Couple of details:

– There are bathrooms near the lighthouse.

– There is free parking along West Cliff Drive.  You may want to drive it first and then decide how far you want to walk. Based on that, pick where you want to park.

Let me know if you go! (I hope you do)
