Just south of Morgan Hill, a few miles from Watsonville Road and on the Santa Clara Wine Trail, is the turn off to Redwood Retreat Road and the way to Bates Ranch Vineyard. This was once a historic stagecoach trail leading to the tranquility of the country, and a haven for poets and writers. Today, that haven still exists in the bucolic 932 acre Bates Ranch, which has been in the same family since the late 1950s.

Abundant water ensures a verdant landscape, & a small natural spring-fed lake offers a haven for water fowl. Explore the miles of trails meant for hiking, horseback riding or mountain biking.
