This vicinity does get very dry sometimes, so do check for current fire restrictions before you go if you plan to bring a stove or make a camp fire. Different parts of this hiking trail are at very different elevations which of course means you need to be prepared for different conditions on different parts of the hiking trail. Of course, this is an overnight backcountry trek, 3 days normally, so better have big a backpack to fit all the stuff you need. Santa Cruz Trail is quite long, so make sure you bring plenty of supplies. Santa Cruz Trail is 19.8 miles long; it's a long hiking trail.
