Weekend Getaways

Hiking the Santa Cruz Mountains

1 Berry Creek Falls Trail

Although the 12-mile trail takes about six hours, moderate hikers can easily handle it (pick up a map at the ranger station before starting out).

2 Old Mountain Inn

On the way into the park, stop at the Old Mountain Inn in Boulder Creek for breakfast.

3 New Leaf Community Market

Stock up on house-made sausages and organic greens to bring with you on the hike.

4 Inn at Saratoga, California

At the end of the day, backtrack 13 miles to the spiffy San Jose-foothills suburb of Saratoga and the upscale 46-room inn. It’s a bit businessy and sedate, but the beds are big and comfortable.
