Forest of Nice Clean Parks Forest of Nisene Marks is beautiful park with a nice
wide road through the middle. The scenery is
beautiful and the trail is smooth enough and the grade easy enough that this is a
very popular place for the locals to take there families. If you decide to show up
on a weekend expect lots of traffic.
Note: The State Park sites list it as Nisene Marks, elsewhere it's listed as Nicene Marks. I changed the spelling on my site to reflect this.
Not enough Singletrack, heavy traffic
Located just south of Santa Cruz in Aptos. From Santa Cruz take highway 1 South to the "State Park Drive" exit. Turn right on Soquel Drive and drive 1 mile to Aptos Creek Road. Turn left on Aptos Creek Road and look for parking in a dirt lot on the right hand side. Follow Aptos Creek road into the park and keep an eye out for a trailhead on the left if you want to catch the singletrack at the beginning.
