Noteworthy Things in and around Felton

Sightseeing
This is my curated list of must see spots in and around Felton.
View the redwood forest in style, in an open air steam train ride. What's special: This is one of oldest and most historic railroad lines in California, originally built in 1875 it carried lumber, picnickers and tourists to the Big Trees and Santa Cruz. You'll have options: 1) Running on the weekends, the Redwood Forest Steam Train is a 75-minute roundtrip ride through the redwoods. It makes one stop in the forest where you can take a short hike and have a picnic (you can bring your own food). It costs $33 per adult/$24 per child ages 2-12. 2) Running on the weekends, the Beach Train is a roundtrip ride from Felton to Santa Cruz beach boardwalk. There's an option for a 3 hour or 7 hour stay at the beach before you return to Felton. It costs $35 per adult/$27 per child ages 2-12 years old. Note: Both rides take you through the scenic redwood forest. Visit roaringcamp.com for online tickets and more details. To get there, you can forego paying $10 for parking and simply walk over. Allow yourself ample time to walk and explore the train depot before your departure (45 minutes is a good amount of time). Ask your host for directions.

This the perfect place to spend an entire day! Take advantage of being on the beach and split your day between rides and play time in the sand.

This is a very nice hike especially on a hot summer day because it is fully shaded and runs parallel with the creek for most of the way. This is an easy to moderate hike, about 2 miles out and back if you turn around at the lime kilns. The lime kilns have special historical significance as they were used to make lime, an ingredient used for make cement. Although covered in moss and dilapidated with time, these lime kilns once helped rebuild San Francisco after the great 1906 earthquake.
