We're day hikers, not backpackers, so we could only go so far into the park, but what we saw on our first day, a 6-mile loop from the main entrance to Frog Lake and Middle Ridge, was beautiful - wildflowers, birds, mountain vistas, and not at all crowded. The second day we hiked along Hunting Hollow Road, which was pleasant... More

Well mapped trails in a high meadow overlooking the entire valley floor. Moderate to difficult hikes with caves, lakes and nature surrounding you.

I live close to Henry Coe so it's pretty easy to get to. It has miles and miles of trails. Most can be challenging to say the least....but there are 'easy' trails in Henry Coe too: out of the HQ area and Hunting Hollow. I take my mountain bike into Coe all the time so I can get further in.... More

Worth the drive up the hill. When the air is clear there are amazing views of the valleys, and sometimes you can see beyond. It is rarely crowded in this park and it is a terrific hike.

Yes, ChirsandJess2006, the outdoors is windy, dusty, hard to reach and there even may be certain regulations to keep it safe from wildfires... We loved Henry Coe! Very helpful and friendly volunteers at the visitor center. Beautiful trails, that are obviously maintained well. A lot of wildlife including deer and turkeys passing by our campsite and coyotes howling during the... More

OK, so all the wonderful reviews that people are writing are all about HIKING. We did not hike. This review is regarding tent-camping only. My wife and I stayed here one night on May 25th 2013 after enduring the ten-mile long super-windy road at around 20 MPH max speed. It is very bumpy, it has a million switch-backs, it is... More

I just completed this hike on 03/26/2013 which was a Tuesday; I encountered only 5 people on the trail all 7 hours of the hike. If you like difficult hikes this is the one you must do because of the famous "Short Cut" trail. The grade on this trail really is 21% percent for 1.4 miles. Throw in the distance,... More

Henry Coe is a very versatile and wonderful state park offering all kinds of activities from hiking, to mountain biking to horseback riding. There are several entrances to the park and you quickly feel embraced by nature leaving the hectic Silicon Valley Life behind you. Check out the website: www.coepark.org. They also have an annual backcountry weekend the last weekend... More
