Hike to Potato Harbor

Potato Harbor Overview hike is a quick 5 mile hike along the picturesque coast of the island, and if you're busy on the island for some time or looking for a easier trail, I highly recommend this one!

The trail rises a few hundred feet and immediately offers sweeping views of Scorpion Cove, Santa Cruz's coastline, Anacapaca Island, and Ventura in the distance. Despite the hike appearing to be crowded when we first set out, we quickly found ourselves walking alone, taking in the views, and feeling the salty breeze of the ocean. Since the hike was so short, we packed it lightly and were able to cross the 2.5 miles to the top in less than an hour. Biggest piece of advice: Make sure the forcast is calling for a clear day with much visibility.
