Henry W. Coe State Park

Coe Park is the largest state park in northern California, with over 87,000 acres of wild open spaces.  The terrain of the park is rugged, varied, and beautiful, with lofty ridges and steep canyons. Once the home of Ohlone Indians, the park is now home to a fascinating variety of plants and animals, including the elusive mountain lion.

Within Coe Park are the headwaters of Coyote Creek, long stretches of the Pacheco and Orestimba creeks, and a 23,300-acre wilderness area.

The park is open year-round for hikers, mountain bikers, backpackers, equestrians, car campers, picnickers, photographers, and people who simply like to visit parks.

The Pine Ridge Association at Henry W. Coe State Park

It is a contracted cooperating Association with the California Department of Parks and Recreation, and is chartered by the IRS as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation. The association has 425 members with approximately 125 active volunteers who staff the Visitor Center; take visitors on guided walks during wildflower season; give interpretive programs; and sponsor special events.
