We are located at 2,300 feet in the northern reaches of the Santa Cruz Mountains. The drive up Montebello Road is a very winding route that occasionally becomes a single lane. Additionally, Montebello road is a popular bicycle route. Please allow sufficient time to ensure you are able to make your drive carefully up the mountain. Carpooling is encouraged and large trucks and buses should contact us prior to your trip to confirm access is available.
