Mount Umunhum (a.k.a. Mt. Um), located within the 18,000 acre Sierra Azul Open Space Preserve in Santa Clara County, is one of the highest peaks in the Santa Cruz mountain range at 3,486 feet. From its spectacular summit, visitors can experience 360-degree views from the Pacific to the Sierra Nevada! This new Open Space destination also offers a rich nature experience that is accessible to visitors of all abilities.
As much as possible, the summit has been restored to its original contours. Expansive views of the Pacific Ocean, Midpen preserves, the regional greenbelt, Mount Hamilton, Loma Prieta, ancient redwoods, Santa Cruz and even the Monterey Peninsula can be seen on a clear day.
