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 Pine Ridge Association

The Pine Ridge Association was formed in 1975 to assist park staff in providing interpretive and educational programs to the public. It provides funds to support guided walks, evening talks , and the state park's volunteer program. It also sponsors the annual Mother's Day Breakfast, the fall Tarantula Fest and barbecue, the Backcountry Weekend, and other park events.

Coe Park in the Fall

photo-rr01Fall can be a wonderful time to visit Coe Park, as the leaves of the oaks, sycamores and occasional big-leaf maples turn yellow and brown. The heat of summer is yielding to cooler mornings and bright days with long afternoon shadows.
