This is not the Eucalyptus Loop. This loop is the English Springs Loop. The maps below by Kale is the Eucalyptus Loop. It's just over 3.2 miles.

road biking

I'm a resident, I can bike and hike directly into the State Park from my home, either via roadway to the main entrance or brush hike through Soquel Canyon. First off, the Hills for Everyone Trail is not the 7.1 mile loop that is being shown here, it is far less, maybe 1.5 miles, and it is an easy hike. This map is showing the Hills for Everyone Trail where it intersects at Four Corners, where Raptor Ridge, Telegraph Canyon, Bovinian Delight, and South Ridge trails all meet. Look at the map, and you will see that Bovinian Delight is listed down to where it meets South Ridge Trail, neither of these are Hills for Everyone. This map also has mistakenly named Telegraph Canyon as Bane Canyon. No, it's not Bane Canyon, it's Telegraph. You enter the park on Bane Canyon, which is paved. Hills for Everyone is a small trail that parallels Telegraph Canyon trail, and actually isn't even shown on this map. The northern most section being shown as Hills for Everyone is actually Raptor Ridge and Faultline Trails. This map is really so badly in error, I wish I could correct it somehow.

With that being said, all trails mentioned above are fantastic for being lightly traveled and getting away from the crowds. We have met very few others on the trails when we have traveled into the park. We ride our bikes, and some of the inclines are stout. A good workout walking or biking, you are well rewarded by the amount of isolation and freedom. Bring plenty of water, it can get very hot and dry in our So Cal summers. There is potable water at the main picnic area at the end of Bane Canyon, which is the paved road that you enter the park on, and there is potable water at an overlook of Lower Aliso Canyon, which is near the end of Bane Canyon. Potable water also at the campground near Rolling M Ranch and the entrance station with the restrooms.

Do yourself a favor and pick up a map at the ranger's entrance kiosk or at Four Corners. The trails are listed accurately there.

Oh, BTW, this is not a dog park, contrary to what some may say or hope. Dogs are allowed only on Bane Canyon Road and in Rolling M Ranch and the campgrounds, on a leash at all times. They are NOT allowed in the Discovery Center building, in the backcountry or on the trails. You can and will get a ticket of sighted by a ranger.

the first 1.8 mile climb is harsh, but after that is great. Raptor Ridge is the funnest trail I've been on. It's even got shade

One of my favorite trails! In the spring time after everything rains it's so green and there are birds singing and overall just very peaceful! It's a pretty moderate hike, I'd be careful with dogs though cause I've seen snakes on multiple occasions. Very good if you want a good leg workout!

Fairly easy trail. It is about 2 1/2 miles. First mile is the steepest. Wide trail and great for dogs.

It is about 3.5 miles. The first mile is mostly up hill. Scenery ranges from baseball fields to the whole Inland Empire to a wooded area, behind a residential neighborhood, then through horse stables. Path is wide and well kept. It is one of my favorites!

Only got a short way into the trail. The trail is somewhat overgrown and the ground covered in weeds. What we saw was pretty, but we were too concerned about snakes.

Beautiful trial but not really safe for dogs. There's tons of fox tails in the paths but you can walk along the road to keep your furry friend safe. I pulled at least 5 fix tails out of my dogs legs. Saw a snake in the road too so caution is recommended but it really is a beautiful and nice long walk! Lots of people and safe areas to park your car.

Loop. Hilly. Takes maybe an hour walking. Sights: city, distant hills and mountains, horse property, and trees. Recommend spring time for beautiful green view.
