Lots of shade here, and the streams still had a bit of water flowing at the end of August 2014. The picnic area, where the trails begin and end, has restrooms and water, lots of picnic tables and barbecues, and a lot of quiet shade. Parking was not a problem on a Sunday afternoon. We left the picnic area on... More

The Waterfall Loop Trail was nice. There was running water in the creek and some mini waterfalls also. Didn't hike up the steep trails, maybe next time. Nice to visit early morning before it gets too hot!

When you look at the reservoir in summer 2014, one realizes how important it is to practice water conservation measures. Water is so far down. The area is still pretty for hikes, and equestrian activities.

Lived in the Bay Area for 30+ years and just discovered this place! Way off the freeway, up a beautiful windy road, lush and green and the creeks and waterfalls full of water even in a drought year. Nice day hike, even dogs allowed - perfect

Love getting away to this park... Some wonderful hiking trails makes you feel like you are miles away from the city.

I camped out in Uvas Canyon last weekend and had a great time. It's only a 1 1/2 h drive from the Berkeley area, which is very convenient. The park is small but has some very nice short hikes with beautiful waterfalls and streams. The light fall through the trees in the canyon is amazing. Mind you, it is a... More

fantastic park for hiking and taking the kids. You can hike down by the creed which is real fun and depending on the time of year there are waterfalls. Also very nice picnic and campgrounds.

This park was a nice little gem of a find on our trip to the central coast. The park's website did not mention the six dollar day use fee. The drive in is along a two lane country road, which my husband loves. H calls it a motorcycle road. Just before entering the park you pass through a private Swedish... More
