5.3 miles
Uvas Canyon is one of the loveliest locales in the San Francisco Bay Area after a couple weeks of winter rains. I hiked 5.3 miles with 1476 feet of elevation gain over nearly four hours (lots of breaks for pictures and enjoying the scenery). Hike writeup at Two Heel Drive.

Uvas Canyon Six Falls Hike

5.7 miles
A moderate hike to five of the park's named falls plus one bonus waterfall.  It had rained yesterday so I was hoping for at least some water in the falls,  Triple Falls was a bit disappointing and the others could use a few more storms to really get going.The hike starts from the main parking lot and takes the Waterfall Loop Trail up to Black Rock Falls.  The other more picturesque side of...

Uvas Canyon rain hike

Sam (Sammydee) proposed Woody and I to go hiking in Uvas Canyon before the rain hits the Bay Area. I hike Knibbs Knob in 2007 but hadn't hike along the creek and the waterfalls since 2006. It was about time I pay a new visit to this park.It started raining a little bit when we arrived around 8 am, and rained harder as time went by. We were pretty drenched at the...

Uvas Canyon June 2009

5.5 miles
Waterfall Loop to the Contour Trail, then up the Alec Canyon trail, then up the side trail to Triple Falls and back, then Alec Canyon to where it ends at the old logging camp. We then reversed Alec Canyon trail back to the parking lot.Hot day, high of 100F or so in Morgan Hill.Note that the vertical up/down figures are very exaggerated, probably due to elevation spikes from iffy GPS reception.

Waterfall Hunting at Uvas Canyon County Park

Get your groovus on at Uvas County Park. Just after a few wintertime rains is a great time to seek out some waterfalls, and Uvas has them in spades. I had a great little loop hike starting up the Alec Canyon Trail, hanging a right on the Contour Trail and then picking up the Waterfall Loop Trail back home. First part of the hike is steep, strenuous and relatively quiet. I saw two...

Came back to hike Uvas canyon today after tried last week and the park was closed.It was a nice hike with a lot of great views.Amazing that there are so many waterfalls in such a small area. Word of caution Dont hike up the Knobcone trail and expect views from the top.We made it up and were surrounded by trees with no real view.

Uvas Canyon and Knibbs Knob

10.2 miles
Hiking trails in Uvas Canyon. The canyon is beautiful in fall even though the waterfalls are not running very well. Vivid mosses and lichens, and bay and maple leaves turning. Some nice views. Knibbs Knob trail is very steep and views from the knob are limited, but pretty good views from the trail. Worth the drive.

Uvas Canyon County Park - Waterfall Loop

5.3 miles
After the some pretty heavy downpours during the previous week, we thought water levels would be up and we could see some nice waterfalls.  We were right.  There's a guide and several trips on EveryTrail for the Waterfall Loop at Uvas Canyon County Park.  I usually search for another hiker's trip that I like, and then download their gpx file to follow.  But for this hike was better to just get a...

Our first trip to Uvas Park.  I have been to the top of Knibs Knob at Mayman Flats but never on the actual trail.  I am building endurance for a summer backpacking trip so I filled my pack with 35lb of gear and came to conquer Knibs Knob.The weather was comfortable in the parking area.  We had a bit of difficulty finding the trailhead.  It is in the back of the youth...
