You are cordially invited to lend a hand in trail work at Coe Park on the new Jim Donnelly Trail.
If you're a hiker, a mountain biker, or a horseback rider, you know that great trails help make great parks. Trails don't just happen though, and many budget-stressed parks (like Coe) rely on volunteers to build new trails and keep old trails open.
Meet at 9am, always, at Hunting Hollow unless otherwise specified.
Lunch at noon.
Wear sturdy footwear and clothes for the activity and expected climate. Bring and wear personal protective gear including gloves and eye-wear.
Poison oak, ticks and other objective hazards may be encountered.
You will be required to sign a waiver in order to participate.
Parking is free for volunteers if a parking pass is obtained during the orientation and displayed upon your windshield/dashboard.
Event ends at 3pm, or when volunteer decides it ends, unless otherwise specified.
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.
