More about Byrne-Milliron Forest Hiking and Art:
A park east of Santa Cruz is full of redwoods, madrones, and, surprisingly, public art.
Imagine a treasure hunt for works of art amid tall trees. Go on one in theByrne-Milliron Forest,a 400-acre park on the outskirts of Corralitos, Calif., east of Santa Cruz.
Along 10 miles of trails among redwoods, oaks, and madrones, visitors can spot sculptures, trinkets, and more integrated into the trees themselves. Also on view: birds such as the Stellers jay, skinks and other lizards, and perhaps the occasional newt.
Most of the art comes courtesy of the parks former steward, Jeff Helmer. He passed away in November 2014, but the nonprofit Land Trust of Santa Cruz County, which administers the park, plans to keep his work intact.
The main loop trail into the forest is steep in parts, but the payoff comes with amazing views of the Pajaro Valley and, weather permitting, Monterey Bay.
