Henry Coe, best flowers in 2 hours? on 04/05/2013 00:43:41 MDT Print View

Hey I'm a poet and didn't know it.
Well, I thought it wasn't going to happen, but last minute it apears we will be able to get a 2 or 3 hour day hike in at Henry Coe on Saturday.

Anyways, I'm looking for trail suggestions. I hear the flowers are great this time of year, so I'd like to see some flowers.

P.S. I know it's not backpacking, but you guys probably have the best knowledge of the trails, topography, flaura, fauna, etc.

A week ago I went up Coyote Peak in Santa Teresa county park in San Jose via Hidden Springs and Ridge trails, looping back via Mines trail. Great views and variety of flowers!

Lucky you! - last week was my first visit there (I live way north of there). Re-reading your post, I think you weren't asking for wildflower trail suggestions in general, just Coe trails - oops...

Lol, no worries. We ended up doing a loop to frog lake.
I wanted to do china hole, but with a baby, and wife who hasn't hiked since baby, we decided on something shorter.
