Beyond Santa Cruz: Explore Portola Valley for hiking, food, and wine tasting

Enjoy a great day trip adventure to Portola Valley on the San Francisco Peninsula!

As many of you know, the Santa Cruz Mountains don't just stay in Santa Cruz County but sprawl themselves through Santa Clara and San Mateo counties as well. If you are looking for a fun day trip, consider a visit to Portola Valley that rests against the eastern slope of the Santa Cruz Mountains on the San Francisco Peninsula, less than an hour drive from downtown Santa Cruz. 
In Portola Valley you'll find hiking and mountain biking at Windy Hill Open Space Preserve, a new wine tasting spot at Neely Winery, coffee at Konditorei Cafe, and more food and drink at the historic Alpine Inn.
