Great day hiking at Coe State Parks. Every trail we were on was in good shape. But the Headquarters Campground is the only California State Park campground that we have ever left before the end of our planned/reserved stay. The small campground has a couple...More

I dreamed of accomplishing this since my childhood a hike from HQ out to Casa De Fruita. This was a challenge of a hike having never undergone prior conditioning for the two day backpacking by foot. I recommend anyone who will do this hike to...More

The nature at Henry Coe is breathtaking. Every time we venture here, at least a few times per year (spring & summer) we instantly gain a sense of calm. It is a meditative experience for the kids and us. Beautiful trails and trees. Highly recommend...More

I went for a day hike and it was beautiful. The trail was challenging but I survived and will go back. I would recommend bringing more water than you think you need

The entrance is a few miles west of the San Luis Reservoir and the very windy Pacheco Pass. A day stop could easily include a drive through the park (expect to get your vehicle dusty), a picnic stop or day hike to stretch your legs....More

Largest state park in California. Has miles of hiking trails to choose from, including relatively easy day hikes. Beautiful scenery.

This is a beautiful park with nice views! If you do not arrive early on weekend, chances are you won't get a parking in the main lot. The overflow lot is 0.5 miles from the main lot - so, allow yourself additional time for that....More

There are many trails to choose from. Parking is $8 per car. Stop by the visitor center for a map, and the ranger there will be happy to suggest a trail that suits your needs. We hiked the Frog Lake trail. It was a 10-mile...More

I went up there for the tranchula fest..... Great if you like huge spiders! Also WERC was there with some of their rescued birds. Amazing. They also have guided hikes throughout the year. The wildflower hikes no the spring are wonderful.

The park was well kept by wonderful staff. I would imagine day hiking would have a much different experience then mine. I am leaving this strong review only for help. If I was not an experienced hike in camper I would want to read all...More

Not really, the lake was very overgrown with few areas for access. I would recommends starting at the top near HQ for that.

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

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
