Guide To Goat Rock

A great staging ground for a number of adventures, from bouldering to rock climbing, day hiking to backpacking, and even birding. The crown jewel, Goat Rock, is a limestone formation that is typical of the park’s geology and the splendid vistas boast one of the absolute best views of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
