60 Hikes in 60 Miles in 60 Weeks: Week Forty-two
Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park

Chalky white trail at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park
What it's like:
Although under 5 miles, this loop features a ton of variety. Trails wander through a diverse landscape of redwoods, chaparral, riparian, even ponderosa pines.

Why now:
Henry Cowell is exceptional in summer. This state park maintains a great campground close to Felton and the cool San Lorenzo River runs through the park. Take the train to Santa Cruz for the day, then return to your campsite for sweet dreams.

If you can't make it this week:
Wildflowers in spring, maple leaves in autumn, quiet in winter.

Insider tip:
Print out a map from the Henry Cowell website (or buy one of the commercial maps available -- this is my favorite) in advance, in case the visitor center is closed upon your arrival. Get an early start to beat the crowds in the redwoods; once past the heritage grove trails are uncrowded.

Henry Cowell is hike number 41 in 60 Hikes in 60 Miles: San Francisco (third edition)Read about this hike on BAHiker.

Alternate choice:
The Sonoma coast is a lovely destination for a day trip (or weekend). When you're rambling up and down CA1 and get the urge to stretch your legs, check out Bodega Head. This easy 3 mile partial loop offers outstanding views of the ocean and coastline.
