Santa Cruz Mountains Homes for Sale
The Santa Cruz Mountains, part of the Pacific Coast Ranges, are a mountain range in central and northern California. The Santa Cruz Mountains are largely the result of compressive uplift caused by a leftward bend of the San Andreas Fault. It has a Mediterranean type climate typical of most of California, with the majority of the annual precipitation falling between November and April. The Santa Cruz Mountains are now home to an abundance of parks and protected open spaces, notable among them is California's oldest state park: Big Basin Redwoods State Park. Many small towns and communities abound this tree clad area and give a real rural mountain feel only minutes from Silicon Valley.
