The Santa Cruz area is not only rich in great waves, but also has amazing forests and open space areas to explore. The MTD Surf House is a cool 1970’s ranch style house which sits on a sunny, south facing hillside, surrounded by redwoods and coastal live oaks with miles of trails to explore. It is a great place to chill out, relax and recharge after surfing all day. The amazing trails of Nisene Marks State Park are right out the front door for your running, hiking and biking pleasure. It feels far removed, yet is mere minutes to world class surfing and great food and entertainment in town.
