Venue

Venue:
Coyote Creek Gate

Description

The Coyote Creek gate is located on the south-west edge of the park on Gilroy Hot Springs Road north-east of Gilroy.

The Coyote Creek gate does not offer parking. If you want to hike or backpack into the park from the Coyote Creek gate, you must register, park, and pay your backpacking fees at the Hunting Hollow entrance. You might want to drop off companions and backpack gear at the Coyote Creek gate before you park at Hunting Hollow and then hike 1.8 miles back to the Coyote Creek gate. If you leave a vehicle at the entrance, you may be ticketed for parking in a no-parking area and your car may be towed away.

Fees

Getting There

The Coyote Creek gate is located on Gilroy Hot Springs Road, the same road you take to get to Coyote Reservoir.

To get to the gate, 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 Coyote Creek gate is about 10.8 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, and the Coyote Creek gate (at road's end) is about 1.8 miles from the Hunting Hollow entrance.
