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

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.

We spent some time here one morning doing a hike. The road to get to the park is only 10 miles from downtown Morgan Hill, but it was narrow and winding, and it took over half an hour to get there. Rangers are usually there...More

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
