Can't beat the wildflowers here in March - June. Good short hikes as well as longer ones. The camp ground is small, but the restrooms are nice.

The park is out in the boonies, about 12-14 miles from the Highway. But that has some advantages- if one wants solitude, the park is very quiet. At least, it was really quiet the day I visited. The two unexpected surprises both relate to night...More

Quite the catch of California, I love the windswept and arid climate of this park. So many great views to see. I found more pictures here! http://www.stateparksreview.com/?s=henry+w+coe+state+park. Great place.

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.

The only option in Gilroy is a Hilton Garden Inn, which is fine, but the Courtyard by Marriott in Morgan Hill was very nice and from what I recall closer to the park. I would go with Morgan HIll. There are a couple of other... More
Hello, We are two families with 3 toddler boys, camping in the park for one night. I am interested to know what will be a easy hike to see wild flowers? Any other suggestions for hiking with toddlers?

The camp sites at the park are right by the ranger station and the park HQ. There is a relatively easy and wide trail that goes along the ridge leaving the HQ. I believe it is called the Pine Ridge trail. There are wide... More
