A great hike

Hike-In Hut!:
You don’t have to rough it when you spend the night in the woods. One of the Santa Cruz Mountains’ most comfy overnight escapes is reached via a moderate 1½-mile hike through redwoods and fern canyons. The Hiker’s Hut is a rustic yet comfortable cabin with a kitchen, stove, microwave, fireplace and enough bed platforms to sleep 14. The large wooden deck makes a great hangout for strummin’ while the sun sets. [Visit WeekendSherpa.com to sign up for email about getting outdoors in Northern California]
