This bundle represents the perennial favorites of hikers who trek the wild hills of Henry Coe State Park. Included in this bundle:
Frog Lake Loop (easy/moderate)
Coyote Creek Loop (Moderate/strenuous)
China Hole trail (strenuous)
Mount Sizer Loop (extra-strenuous)
Backpacking at Kelly Lake, Mississippi Lake and Frog Lake (all strenuous to extra-strenuous.)
See the individual guides for more descriptions of the park and its trails.
All Henry Coe hikes require sunscreen and an ample water supply; much of the hiking is in direct sun, and many steep trails will work up a major sweat that requires constant hydration.
Day use fees: Coe Ranch Entrance $8 | Hunting Hollow Entrance $6
Driving directions: Dunne Avenue HQ: From U.S. 101, take the East Dunne Avenue Exit and head east into the hills. It's 13 miles to the park entrance from the expressway. Expect 30 minutes of driving time on the mountain section.
Hunting Hollow: Take U.S. 101 to Leavesley Road exit and head east toward the hills. Turn left onto New Road, then right onto Roop Road, which transitions into Gilroy Hot Springs Road. The large Henry Coe State Park sign on the right is the Hunting Hollow entrance.
Pay your parking/backpacking fees via the iron ranger.
Coyote Creek: Coyote Creek is just down Gilroy Hot Springs Road from Hunting Hollow. It dead-ends at a bridge across a creek.
Only a few parking spaces are available here; you may have to shuttle people/gear back from Hunting Hollow if you're on a backpacking trip.
