The crisp coolness in the air smells fresh, the leaves are changing color and starting to fall, and squirrels are gathering nuts for the winter ahead. Our seasons may be subtle here in the Bay Area but there is no denying it – fall is here. The wonderful thing about the Santa Cruz Mountains is that even throughout the fall and winter there are abundant opportunities to get out and enjoy our local forests.

Whether you want to get out to explore the changing colors of oaks and maples, watch banana slugs and salamanders move across the damp earth, listen to the low roar of a gushing waterfall, or even camp overnight, click here to explore fall and winter outdoor opportunities.
