This loop hike leads you to Black Rock Falls, Basin Falls and Upper Falls. Swanson Creek flows through the dry season most years, but visiting in the spring when the creek's at high flow is the best time to experience each of these falls.
Along the way, look for quail, deer, vultures, woodpeckers, hawks and wild turkeys.
Uvas Canyon Park contains 7.2 miles of hiking trails among its 1,147 acres, located on the eastern side of the Santa Cruz Mountains. It is an integral part of our regional wildlife habitat, something we are actively working to protect more of in the South Bay.
