Hikes in Land of Medicine Buddha
1 Jan 2012
Land of Medicine Buddha in Santa Cruz is a serene Buddhist retreat center that offers a six-mile loop amid redwoods. Very peaceful ambience.
Notes: As of February 2012, a good trail map was not available. A hand-drawn map, not to scale, was available at the monastery. There are unnamed intersections with trails leading to Forest of Nisene Marks.
Closed on weekends: In Feb 2016, Land of Medicine Buddha posted a notice that from 1 April 2016 onwards, public access to Land of Medicine Buddha would be limited to weekdays and Sundays after noon. No public access on Saturdays. See the notice.
