The attractive Uvas Canyon County. one the jewels of the Santa Clara County park system, lies on the finish of Croy street within the hills west of Morgan Hill. My spouse and I lived in a little bit home midway up Croy, with Uvas creek operating by our yard, for 24 years. It was an previous home, inbuilt 1929, and was attending to be an excessive amount of for us to maintain up (we received our water from the creek and had a septic system, there was a number of upkeep). It was additionally getting a little bit previous that we have been 15 miles from the closest retailer. So we left that nation setting and moved to downtown Morgan Hill eleven years in the past, and we adore it down right here too. However I do typically miss having the park as my playground just one half of miles away. Luckily I can now rise up there anytime I like with my e-bike, it takes about 40 minutes a technique and it’s a pleasant journey.
Uvas is famend for it’s waterfalls, which move spectacularly within the winter and early spring, the peak of the wet season now. There nonetheless fairly this late, so I went as much as verify them out.
That is the primary time I did a motorbike/hike to the park utilizing my e-bike. Now that I do know it doesn’t take that lengthy, I’ll be again extra usually. It’s higher by bike, there’s restricted parking so it’s important to make reservations with the county to park there (that was even true pre-Corona).
