Henry Cowell is one of my favorite parks in Santa Cruz County. You get the quintessential redwood experience but you also get sunny sandhill ridges, grasslands (often roamed by deer), the peaceful San Lorenzo River, and the not-so distant sounds of steam train whistles echoing through the forest. It's quite a magical place and anyone who's been there knows just what I'm talking about.

Take a peek at these Castle Rock photos - and more specifically, Goat Rock Trail photos - and get inspired for your next adventure!
