Mobile Ranger Santa Cruz

Mobile Ranger
This is a unique tour of West Cliff Drive and the North Coast of Santa Cruz, California. It’s like taking a very knowledgeable park ranger with you. We show you how natural history and human history combine to shape the way the landscape looks today.

West Cliff Tour: This 29-stop tour along West Cliff Drive and the Municipal Wharf is best done on foot. You will learn about a diverse array of things: the wave motor of the 1890's, the "toilet bowl" formations lurking within the local rocks, why Lighthouse Field is still a park and not a beach front shopping mall, and why Santa Cruz is the true “Surf City, USA!”

North Coast Tour: This 5-stop tour of the North Coast, from Long Marine Laboratory to the Davenport Cement Plant, is a driving tour—though you will want to get out of your car and spend time at each stop. You will find out how the local rocks control much of what the coast look like, how railroad barons stole the ocean view, and how the "Cement King" built Davenport and then lost it all.


Access tour stops via a table list or an interactive map—easily switch between the two interfaces.

High-quality information carefully researched and vetted by university professors and professional historians.

Audio provided for most all stops.

Content packed.

Completely ad-free!
