See here for more info: https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=30009 See the Bay Area bloom in a hidden corner of Henry Coe State Park. Strenuous 9-mile hike. Henry Coe State Park south of San Jose is one of the best places see the Bay Area's spring wildflowers bloom. The park is all rugged countryside: hills, ridges, canyons -- genuine wilderness barely an hour's drive from a huge metropolitan area. The park's main entrance attracts throngs of flower gazers every spring, but few visit the remote Coyote Creek entrance. It's their loss, because this route is arguably the best place to see wildflowers at Henry Coe. Most of the hiking is on narrow single-track, unlike so many of Henry Coe's old ranch roads built for cars rather than hikers. Most of the trails are nicely graded and switchbacked, making this a pleasant route by Henry Coe standards. The Elderberry Spring Trail in the middle of this hike is one of the great Bay Area trails.Show more

Head back down Heritage to drop into Pacheco Creek. Heritage can be a little overgrown in spots, but it is a fun downhill.
