For over 40 years, Sacred Earth has been cherished by many as an example of sustainable off-grid living immersed in nature. While it is just 12 minutes drive from the village of Ben Lomond, 30 from Santa Cruz beaches, and 90 minutes to Berkeley, this valley feels as though you are deep in the wilds, complete with old growth Redwoods you can stand inside and far- reaching majestic Madrones. The land is home to the headwaters of Love Creek, with springs to be found in fern gullies and gentle babbling brooks. The breathtaking ridgetop has expansive views down the San Lorenzo Valley southeast and westerly views to Ben Lomond Mountain, the final hill between this place and the Pacific. Don’t miss the sunrise with meandering mist rising off the valley. Large sites allow for family and group gatherings/activities, while small tucked in tent sites provide hidden nooks. Hiking trails (open in dry season only) encircle the land and allow for moderate walks throughout its mostly vertical terrain. What is truly dynamic about Sacred Earth is the sheer diversity of plant and animal species combined with its proximity to world-class surfing, sailing, scuba, mountain biking, hiking, birdwatching, etc. Make your stay in Santa Cruz Mountains at SER.This large camp site that has room for 2-3 tents around a central circle. It is a nestled cove of tall redwoods with a fairy circle perfect for chilling inside. You can drive up to the site. This site is accessible to 2 wheel drive cars. Camp style composting toilet is on site. It is a great spot for family events and reunions of all kinds. Please reach of if you wish to host a larger gathering.

What a wonderful place that Hope and Colin have! They were very helpful with directions to their property and when I got there Colin gave me a tour of their grounds. The site has a nicely laid out plots for each tent. And there is a nice little trail that will take you up to the ridge, that has a remarkable views of the mountains!

Amazing amazing amazing
Amazing spot and private area. Very beautiful and close to nature, I really recommend this to other people and the host is very very very friendly and has a lovey dog who loves to come and say hi, a very good start to the morning. Would recommend if you're looking for something quite for a weekend getaway.

Beautiful site!
I would highly recommend anyone camp at the goddess circle. We were warmly welcomed by the host, Hope, who made a fire for us and shared the history of the area. The campsite is large and beautiful, surrounded by redwoods and manzanitas. There is a short trail directly next to the campsite where you can walk to a ridge a see a beautiful view of the valley with benches and a swing. The site also has a toilet and 3 gallon jug of water which was appreciated. This site is perfect for hammocking, hiking, exploring the outdoors, and connecting with people and nature.

The communications leading up were great and they made sure we knew exactly where we were going. The spot is isolated and truly feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere
