This park was started with the cattle ranch developed by Henry Coe in the 1800's. Much land has been added and this is now one of the larger state parks. 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

I stopped to see what or who it was named after only to find what should be a county park named after the family that donated the land. No historical significance, nothing really to see (it is in the hills and the scenery is nice, but you can see this without paying to get into a state park).

I spent an enjoyable day hiking. The weather was warm but a breeze kept things bearable. I loved the golden, rolling hills dotted with huge old oak trees. From the park headquarters you can see forever!

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.
