2. Santa Cruz: West Cliff Drive 

For the less experienced cyclist, West Cliff drive is an ideal trail for cruising the coastline. Only three miles long, this trail is perfect for a short ride taking in the incredible scenery surrounding the trail. Want a mid-route break on your cycle? 

We have you covered. Immerse yourself in the surf culture by stopping in at the Santa Cruz Surfing Museum at Lighthouse Point and if you're lucky you may even spot a whale or dolphin while you're there. Then after completing the remainder of your ride, you will end at the gorgeous Natural Bridges State Beach.  Take a look at Felice Carrabino's film of the West Cliff to see just how beautiful the views really are.
