This is one of 3 places I go to on a regular basis. It's close to home, it's scenic and it's challenging enough. The falls are beautiful!!

Great little hike, nice and shady on hot days ... pretty waterfalls, a little limited at this time - beginning of May 2015 - due to California drought, but still very enjoyable.

Henry W. Coe State Park: Middle Ridge Trail

Hiked about 9 miles in Coe Park yesterday with 4 friends. Started at park HQ and took Monument Trail to Hobbs Rd to Middle Ridge Trail to Fish Trail then added on about 3 miles by looping south around Forest Trail then north via Springs Trail to Corral Trail and back to HQ. Though the skies were heavy to start with, the storm had passed, and we avoided having to put on rain gear. By 2pm the skies were clear and we had sun and a cool breeze, perfect for hiking. Encountered backpacking groups -- pairs of friends, school groups and scouts. The trails took us through a varied landscape from shad,y wooded creeksides to sunny, windswept hillsides studded by iconic stand-alone California oaks.

great place for kids age 5 and up to start hiking. My 5 year old son had a blast and the trails are fun and interesting enough to keep him motivated to finish.

I strongly recommend going along the creek on the left before climbing the steep hill. Feb is a good time to go water falls are gushing out more. $6. parking fee/ bathrooms.

Beautiful hike, a lot of uphill climbing on the first part of the hike. Trails are marked well and loved the waterfall.

Beautiful hike! I'd recommend going when it has recently rained so there is more water. There was barely any water when I hiked (because of the drought!) but it would be gorgeous with more water. Very peaceful and shady. Kid friendly.

El Toro Trail

Officially, this trail is on private property and is only open to the public once a year through the City of Morgan Hill. The last couple years it has not been opened. The last section of this trail is a very extreme incline and during the open day there is a rope to haul yourself up on and the Boy Scouts have done trail maintenance to prepare it. The views from the top extend out 360 degrees back into Paradise Valley, across Chesbro Reservoir and all of the Morgan Hill area and beyond. Do be careful of loose dirt and an overabundance of poison oak along trail edges.
