Show Me the Redwoods
Land of Medicine Buddha
5800 Prescott Rd, Soquel
EK: When I have outdoorsy friends in town, this is where we go. It’s a Tibetan Buddhist retreat center with the most beautiful trails. Just drive a couple of miles and you’re surrounded by redwoods.
SF: Yes, a really peaceful place. And they allow dogs; even the dogs seem chilled out.
EK: My favorite hike is the Eight Verse Pilgrimage Trail, a milelong stroll right through the thick of the redwoods. Or the big daddy, a 6-mile hike that backs up to The Forest of Nisene Marks State Park.
