This event has been cancelled because the road to the park is unsafe. Many slides have come down on the road and there is a lot of heavy equipment out there.
Bring the family and join us for a scavenger hunt near the creek. Come hike along the creek with us and discover what plants and animals exist there. Have you ever seen a newt before? What do you know about the Sycamore trees? Grab your rain coats and rubber boots and and join us to find the answers to questions like these. This event will occur rain or shine so be prepared to wander around the creek.
Maybe there will even be some boat and rubber ducky races. You just never know.
There will also be a Mountain Bike Clinic for kids. Kids, bring your bike and helmet if you have them and ride the Mountain Biking Challenge Course for Kids. Loaner bikes and helmets will be available if you don't have them. Learn from experienced mountain bikers how to navigate obstacles you will find on the trail. Heavy rains will cancel the mountain bike clinic part of the event for safety reasons but the rest of the event will proceed as planned.
Bring your own lunch or snacks.
There is a $6.00 parking fee per vehicle (Try and bring exact amount if possible)

The Hunting Hollow entrance and parking lot is located on the south-west edge of the park on Gilroy Hot Springs Road north-east of Gilroy.
The Hunting Hollow gate and parking area is open 24 hours a day, year round. You can arrive at the entrance and park any time of day or night. You can self-register for day use or backpacking. Be sure to take a park map with you when you head into the backcountry. You'll find free handout maps at the bulletin board in the parking area. You can also study a large park map stapled to the bulletin boards. Large maps are available for purchase on weekends when the parking area is staffed (in March through June).
There are no car camping sites at the Hunting Hollow entrance.
Dogs are not allowed beyond the Hunting Hollow entrance. See Dogs at Coe Park for more information.
No drinking water is available at the Hunting Hollow entrance, so be sure to bring what you'll need.
The Coe Park Hunting Hollow entrance is located on Gilroy Hot Springs Road, the same road you take to get to Coyote Reservoir.
To get to the entrances, take Highway 101 to Gilroy (which is about 10 miles south of Morgan Hill and 25 miles south of San Jose). The distance from 101 to the Hunting Hollow entrance is about 9 miles.
Take the Leavesley Road exit (County Road G9) and head east.
After about 1.8 miles, turn left (north) on New Avenue; go a little over half a mile and then turn right (east) on Roop Road. About 3.3 miles up Roop Road, you'll pass the Coyote Reservoir Road on the left.
The Hunting Hollow entrance is about 3.3 miles past the Coyote Reservoir Road turnoff.
