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.
