Cycling Eureka Canyon
Ride 8.2 miles gaining 1,572’’ at 3.6% average grade.
In our opinion, Eureka Canyon is the most epic bike climb in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The climb is very remote, located along a rough single lane road for the last few miles and surrounded by redwood forest much of the climb. We loved this climb and highly recommend it to anyone cycling in the Santa Cruz area.
Climb begins by riding north up Eureka Canyon Road from its intersection with Hames Road in Corralitos.
Surrounded by redwoods along much of the climb.
The last few miles of the climb is along a very rough road.
The climb ends at the 4 corners of Eureka Canyon/Highland Way/Buzzard Lagoon/Ormsby Cutoff.
That’s a wrap!!
