Elena's WindTree property is amazing beyond words. As someone who camps all over the world, this was the most magical place I've ever been. Elena does a great job making the campsites easy to find, comfortable and private. The amenities and art around the property are divine. Elena and the people who work the mountain ranch are the nicest people on Earth. I count her as a dear friend after one night. Do yourself a favor and visit and enjoy the views and the people and the magical places to spend time in the outdoors. From my site, I could see sweeping views of mountains and the ocean and not see another property from many of the sacred lookouts. Wow wow wow!

Goats are there also, and they are fun.WindTree Medicine Wheel SiteOne of dozens on benches to sit and relax.One of the beautiful spots to relax on the property and breathe clean air and see for miles...

We were driving up from the south and it was a challenge to find the location, especially since there were no street or property signs anywhere along the way up the mountain. We almost gave up at the gate that said "No Trespassing, Private Property," but luckily a truck was coming down in the opposite direction and had to stop to let us pass -- we were able to ask the driver if WindTree was up the road. He didn't know, but he said he made a delivery to someone else 3 miles up and it took roughly the amount of time that our GPS indicated, so he encouraged is to press on. We finally found the location as the sun was setting, and it was very dusty and windy. Beautiful view, though!

Our camp site was a brief hike down from the parking area. There seemed to be some kind of party at the main house that lasted well into the night -- we could hear a lot of loud conversations and laughter as we tried to sleep. When we woke up, we found that the outhouse was really an outdoor compost toilet in an open space at the end of a walking path -- there was no screen for privacy from anyone else who may have been exploring the area. There were a few interesting paths to explore around the camp site, but after snapping a few photos, we heard people walking and talking around and decided to head out early to our next stop to avoid disrupting whatever event may have been underway.

All in all, I'm grateful that we were able to camp here since all of the public campgrounds were booked when we tried reserving sites. If I had other options available, though, I wouldn't return.

The instructions on how to arrive were great, definitely need to get there before sunset! Beautiful views, big sites with great space for fires, flat area for tent and even nice picnic table, chairs, space to wash dishes. Elena is super kind and all the young folks helping out on the land (people can WWOOF there) were smiley and cool. I walked some of the little trails in the morning and said hey to the animals. Really great!

Such a unique spot with incredible views of the Santa Cruz mountains. It is definitely hard to find with a lot of dirt road, so I wouldn't get there after dark. The directions they provided were great.

The farm has a funky vibe with lots of little alcoves throughout the property. The outdoor tub is pure magic. Overall, highly recommend!

Spent a peaceful two days at the Medicine Wheel site! Plenty of space, amazing views and quite possibly the prettiest tent set up location. Would definitely recommend!
