Why Visit Us
10,000 years of human occupation have passed. All who have found a place here, whether for a day or for a lifetime, have been gentle with the land. They were good stewards, and the land sustained them and gave them food, shelter, and sometimes wealth.

About Coe Park
Largest state park in northern California
Henry W. Coe State 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.goldvistasThe ridges, meadows, and deep canyons of Henry W. Coe State Park are located in the Diablo Range south of San Jose and east of the fertile Santa Clara Valley.
Elevations in the 87,000-acre park range from 710 feet where the North Fork of Pacheco Creek leaves the southeastern part of the park to 3,560 feet on the slopes of Mt. Stakes in the northeastern area of the park.
