Best SVRA to off-road 4x4, dirt bike, ATV, hike, mountain bike, or ride horses!

The park is mostly mixed grasslands and Oaks. Very little shade and no water so be prepared and wise in your choice of days! Great views from the ridge top and a nice workout getting there. Plenty of wildflowers but the wild grass has outcompeted them so they are mostly just visible along road and trail cuts. Hiking with cows!

Name is misleading, nothing to do with Hollister Hills, since it's right in town. Easy walk, nice run and repeat trail. Nice views of Hollister, and has potential if maintained better. However, the back side of the trail once you pass beyond the water tanks has homeless dwellings that are unavoidable. Go with a friend if you aren't comfortable being out and about alone.

This was my first visit to Henry W. Coe State Park and I thoroughly enjoyed this Coyote Creek loop hike! Like the other reviewer, I too was glad I chose to do this hike in the clockwise direction. The steep descent down Grizzly Gulch would be exhausting as a climb going the other direction. With some very welcomed rain yesterday the wooded sections of the hike were damp and the scent was wonderful. Elderberry Spring Trail and the trail through Coyote Creek Canyon were my favorite parts. But the views from atop the ridge were also fantastic. Looking in various directions I could see Mt. Hamilton, Mt. Carmel, Gilroy and I could even make out the ridgeline of the Sierras way off in the distance. Coming across some foraging wild pigs was just below Jackson Road was fun!

HOT HOT HOT! It is very sunny out there. Bring sun block! We drove around on a few of the blue "more difficult" trails. Our friend was not very comfortable on the inclines and nearly drove his truck off the side of a hill, but all was fine in the end. At the end of the day we drove up to Hector Heights, which has an amazing view. There was only one other truck up there. We sat in the shade of our vehicles and had a late lunch. We were all worn out at the end of the day. I would definitely go back.
