“What a find!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

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.

“Great place for a quick hike”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

several trails, at various lengths and elevation gains. The trails are well marked and maintained. Nice waterfalls in late winter and spring. there is a nice marked nature trail. Lots of lady bugs in late winter. There is parking fee, 5 or 6 dollars. Picnic tables and fire pits. Nice restrooms. also campsites are available. Also fairly shady, good for summer hikes.

“Fantastic park close to the Bay Area!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

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 canyon, so parts of the hikes could still be a bit of a challenge if you are not in shape.

The campground is small. The sites are relatively open, so if there are a lot of families on Saturday it can be a bit noisy. The best time to come is during the week or Sunday after 12PM. Sooo peaceful! The amenities are brand new and super clean!

I can totally recommend this park for a short camping trip or even just for a nice picnic and hike on the weekend. I will be back!
