Overview


Less than 45 miles from San Francisco and Silicon Valley, La Honda is an isolated rural community nestled in the majestic coastal redwood forests of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Pioneers in the late 19th century were loggers and ranchers who competed against grizzly bears and mountain lions for food. Outlaws like the Younger brothers (partners with Jesse James) used La Honda's isolation to avoid justice. Gradually the community became a mountain retreat for cityweary San Franciscans, and in the 1960s, La Honda was home to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest author Ken Kesey and his psychedelic Merry Pranksters. Today's La Honda is an enigma--its size and character have barely changed while the rest of the San Francisco Peninsula has exploded around it.
