    What a great park! Covering such a large area of land with so many trails you could easily be here for days and still not be able to explore everything. Because we were only here for a limited amount of time. We did the circle that goes around the redwood grove near the gift shop. It was so nice. It was nor crowded at all, especially compared to Muir Woods. We were alone on the trail most of the time. Be on the look out for banana slugs and deer. We saw deer but no banana slugs. But when we went to the Fall Creek side of the park we saw banana slugs and make sure to check out my review for that as well. The trail is very shaded. It’s so amazing to look at the immense size of the redwood trees. There’s so much to see and do in this park. You can on a train ride and maybe even spot some locals riding their own horses throughout the park. Even though you have to pay to enter the park it’s worth it goes towards a good cause and don’t forget – if you go to another part the same day you get to go for free!

    JUNE 15 2014 First time I had a problem with any State Park in the Thirty-two years of camping. About 7:30am Went to bathroom to brush my teeth had to what just a few minutes for the two men with Parks Maintenance to finish cleaning the bathroom .Upon entering the the bathroom I could smell the strong Oder of BLEACH it was so strong my eyes were burning. I quickly brushed my teeth and got out. About twenty mins.later I went to take off my sweatshirt to see it was damaged all across the front from BLEACH.The black in color is now white,and started to to develop a hole.Clearly the Maintenance personal DOSE’T KNOW HOW TO RINSE, AND TOWEL DRY THE SINKS. LOOK OUT YOU ARE SUBJECT TO BEING BURNED BY THE BLEACH.

    STAY OFF THE Zayante Trail.. Rangers DO NOT patrol this trail and there is many people with off leash pit-bulls and dogs, Many homeless Camps and much garbage, stripped bicycles strewn about the bushes. UNFORTUNATELY this is the only way many of us can get into Henry Cowell Park on our horses.Scary when you see dogs rushing you on your horse barking and growling, while the owner is just numb to anything your trying to say to them about leash laws. I will start carrying pepper spray and WILL use it if a dog proceeds to try and attack me OR my horse!

    We walked the redwood grove trail, a one mile walk through some of the oldest redwoods in the area. The forest is peaceful, the redwoods are awe inspiring, and all the facilities are well maintained. The park rangers we met were nice and helpful as well. If you’re nearby, definitely stop by.

    Really beautiful park just north of Santa Cruz – there is a river that you can walk past and some nice trails to explore.
