This park features 15 miles of hiking and riding trails through a forest that looks much the same as it did 200 years ago. Zayante Indians once lived in the area, where they found shelter, water and game. Henry Cowell Redwoods is home to a centuries old Redwood Grove that features a self-guided nature path. It also boasts other old-growth woods such as Douglas fir, mandrone, oak and a stunning stand of Ponderosa pines. The park has a picnic area above the San Lorenzo River. Anglers fish for steelhead and salmon during the winter. The park has a nature center and bookstore. The main park area contains the large, old-growth redwoods, while the northern area (Fall Creek) has about 20 miles of hiking trails. The tallest tree in the park is about 285 feet tall, and about 16 feet wide. The oldest trees in the park are about 1400 to 1800 years old. The park is near Felton on Highway 9 in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The Day Use Annual Pass is accepted at this park. Open Sunrise to Sunset.

Awesome hike with our puppy and four-year old. We took a short detour up the Bear Mountajn trail and are lunch at a picnic bench near the train track. Plenty of shade for the majority of the tail.

Hike seemed very pleasant. But, must warn about few adventurous routes we took. There is one deviation where we need to go below and cross over a branch. Instead, we climbed up a non safe path which was leading to nowhere. So we had to comeback. Otherwise, it was just an amazing feeling in the woods.
