Maple Falls

Not so few days ago on a rainy morning a bunch of us went to Maple Falls in the forest of Nisene Marks, a beautiful redwood forest near Santa Cruz. It was a 8 mile hike, and unlike most popular trails in the bay the trail was not a loop. The destination was Maple falls and you go back the same way. The fun part of the hike was during the last half mile towards the falls we had to wade through a creek, jump over fallen trees and rocks while crossing the creek several times. Thanks to the rain most of us were already drenched by the time we reached the falls. And the water was still freaking cold. I felt shivers down my spine when I stood below the falls, not just the first time, but every single time. The water was bone chilling cold. It was one of those hikes where you feel really close to the nature. One of my favorite hikes and I hope to go back there sometime soon when it stops raining.
