When built, the long-envisioned Purisima-to-the-Sea Trail will link the California Coastal Trail to the Bay Area Ridge Trail, allowing open space visitors to travel on trail between the Pacific Ocean, through grassy ridgelines, canyons and forests, to the ridgeline of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
The Purisima-to-the-Sea Trail will eventually be part of the larger 40-mile Bay-to-Sea Trail, an envisioned but not yet realized regional trail that would connect the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean.
Work started in early 2021 to begin planning the Purisima-to-the-Sea Trail and parking area. There will be multiple opportunities throughout the project for public input. To stay informed, please sign up for our email list below.
