Trail Description
About this trail
This fun and beautiful trail was named after the late Emma McCrary-an avid equestrian-who advocated for and built trails throughout the Santa Cruz area, believing the more accessible the wilderness was to people, the more protection it would have.

The 1.5 mile trail, which begins at the Golf Club Drive trail head and links to the Rincon Trail leading to UCSC, is an incredible accomplishment and testament to the spirit of community cooperation in Santa Cruz County. MBoSC is proud to have played a key role in the development of this scenic multi-use trail conceived by the Santa Cruz Parks Department and designed by MBoSC Trails Officer Drew Perkins.

The Emma trail will experience heavy traffic in both directions by not only mountain bikers, but hikers and runners with or without their canine friends, and equestrians.

Review: Once of the best single tracks! Flowy, good climbing, and connector into Wilder Ranch and UCSC.

Review: Fantastic flow trail!
Great, reliable surface.
Nice flow and features.
Not super technical, but super fun!

Unfortunately, there is no separate "return" trail,so there are bikers in both directions and hikers too. This deserves to be a downhill-only trail...
