A great hike

Glamping with Madonna: Set high in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Mount Madonna County Park comprises 3,200 acres of beautiful secluded land filled with redwoods, hiking trails, four campgrounds and five awesome yurts. Madonna’s yurts are ruggedly elegant. Set beneath hulking redwoods, the yurts have bunk beds and fold-out futons inside, with a wrap-around deck and picnic table to encourage plenty of time spent outside.
