San Vicente Redwoods
San Vicente Redwoods and Coast Dairies (inland) represents about 14,000 contiguous acres of public land between Bonny Doon and Davenport
In November 2011, Land Trust of Santa Cruz County and four conservation partners purchased 8,500 acres of privately held land, now known as the San Vicente Redwoods (formerly Lonestar Timberlands or CEMEX Redwoods), located above Coast Dairies and north of Wilder Ranch State Park.
The new land managers intend to manage this property for conservation and recreation. MBoSC’s objective is to partner with the land manager to assist in the stewardship of the property with the support of the mountain bike community.
The San Vicente Redwoods and the adjacent Coast Dairies property (managed by the BLM) comprise nearly 14,000 contiguous acres between Bonny Doon and Davenport. Linking these two properties with trails could provide for long descents with a 2,500 foot elevation drop. Imagine a ten to fifteen mile ride from Empire Grade to the beach through spectacular redwood forests with sweeping ocean views.
