Great hiking for all seasons. Can get really hot in the summer but the shade of some of the trails saves you. Such a huge amount of winding trails, know that Bald Mountain can be straight up, but that's what we like...right? All the loops...More

Thanks for your great review. Our website has trail guides so you can find the best hikes for your ability, the weather and time.

We did the waterfall loop trail, in the challenging direction. It was quite the hike. Beautiful scenery around every turn. One minute you are climbing a mountain, the next you are walking on a narrow trail on the side of that mountain, then you are...More

This State Park no longer is supported by the state, but is managed beautifully by the 5 nonprofits that stepped up.

Glad you survived the hike! Next time we promise views.

Great views across the area - and a perspective on how the area is recovering from the wildfires. Interesting that the insects have returned -- but not much wildlife was around. Nicely marked trails although some are still closed --and not very far from vineyards.

Thanks for the nice review! I think you are talking about the Meadow/Hillside Loop and the Vista Loop.

Like most CA state parks, you need to plan well in advance unless you have a handicap placard. Each site has some level of tree cover, but none really have any utility hookups. There are plenty of water spigots around the loop, so you won't...More

Yes. The dip limits the size of trailers that can get into the campground. About 28 foot rv and 24 foot trailer is the limit.
