Great 3-mile loop hike with beautiful scenery, free range cattle, wildlife, and nice level landscape. Great for a family walk.

We walked this trail in the winter. It was an easy path. We saw some plants and some birds, including a cardinal. I believe it may be part of a mission pilgrimage trail. Dogs were allowed, which was a nice change.

I'm not really sure. I believe so just because the County is pretty animal friendly. You should check with the Santa Cruz County Animal Control Department to make sure.
