Old Haul Road
Much of this fire road follows the route of a narrow gauge railroad line that hauled logs to the various mills that once flourished in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Even today you can find rusty chocker cables used to skid and lift logs on to flatcars. This road provides a multiuse route (hikers bicycles and equestrians), from Memorial Park to Portola State Park. Many of the trails within the Pescadero Creek Park intersect with the Old Haul Road. Recreational users should remain aware that this is the main access road for maintenance crews and should expect to meet the occasional heavy truck and tractors along the way.
