Santa Cruz Mountains


By Marlayna Kirby
While leading groups through the forests of Little Basin I often stop to admire the newts living in the shallow creek or wandering along the forest floor. Rough Skinned Newts (Taricha granulosa) are an interesting amphibian inhabitant of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Both children and adults alike find them fascinating.

An Amazing Place To Experience

Little Basin is a beautiful place, all year round. The grasses in the meadow are turning to Fall shades of yellow and red. The light has shifted creating a gorgeous play of light and shadow. Come and experience the wonder of this playground in the redwoods. Can you smell the reswood tree duff all around? Camp under these magnificent giants. We’re open year-round…come visit!
