HW Coe is the second largest state park in California. over 80,000 acres! It's huge! You can walk anywhere in the park and sometimes go for a week without seeing any other human. Only serious outdoor people use the back country. The headquarters, Hunting Hollow and Hwy 152 entrances are the only areas accessible to vehicles and are fine for... More

This is a great place to spend the day in nature. Beautiful oak trees and well maintained trails with good information about length and difficulty, etc. Quite a lot of wildlife as well, especially you are their very early in the day.

Vast area, incredible views, the California you imagine of 100 years ago. Tremendous venue for cross-country, downhill and climbing on single and double track trails.

We have enjoyed going to Henry W. Coe State Park a number of times for both hiking and picnics. Its in the hills and in the spring the wild flowers are out. The park was once a ranch of Henry W. Coe and family. There is more than 89,000 acres to explore at this state park. The vista views are... More

Park: The trails in this park were absouletly stunning in April 2015. So many wild flowers in bloom. Access: It is a winding 13mile road access, which is beautiful and full of wildlife. Might be challenging for an inexperienced/nervous driver. Just take it slow and enjoy the drive. Rangers: The rangers absolutely wonderful at helping us when we realised that... More

It's a great park for hiking with family and friends, or even if you want to camp and try harder trails. You'll be surrounded by nature, from amazing birds, trees filed with acorn from woodpeckers to deer and squirrels. Great views, a great way to go out and enjoy the nature without traveling to far away from the city.

Fine people, volunteers. Enjoyable whether a short hike, oovernight caming or a long backpacking trip into the wilderness. Peace and quiet, guided hikes, special events, e.g. BBQ in Fall, Mother's Day brakfast, Back Country weekend.

Down Morgan Hill way is a hidden gem that those of us commuting to work on over crowded freeways, or feeling a little claustrophobic hemmed in by neighbors or just trying to find a parking place within 3 miles of the new 49'ers Levi stadium should all take a Saturday or Sunday off and discover 87,000 thousand acres of peace...

It consists of rolling hills in a fairly arid area, There are several hiking trails and a few inholdings. Creeks, usually dry, flow after rains. There are some campsites. It... More
