When it’s not raining, Castle Rock State Park offers amazing hiking and rock climbing just under an hour away from Santa Cruz! 🌲🥾

And when it is raining, you can still get out there and have some adventures! 🌧️

We went out last weekend in a break from the rain and sent some climbs at Indian Rock 🧗🏽

Just remember to bring water, snacks, warm clothes, and plan beforehand as there is no cell service there, adventure on!
