Southeast of San Jose, the 80,000 acre Henry W Coe State Park is a wilderness paradise for equestrians. If you plan to venture more than a few miles into the park, you and your horse should be in excellent physical shape and you should be prepared for steep, rugged terrain. There are eight designated horse camps in the park, and each of them has a set of pipe corals that will hold at least two horses.
To reach the hiking trailhead from San Jose, head south on US101 to Morgan Hill. Take the East Dunne Avenue exit and head east to park entrance about 13 miles.
Overall, Henry Coe State Park is the 51st most popular hiking trail of all 88 hikes in California.
