I learned a lot about myself on the day that I spent hiking in Huddart, as far as the Pfleger Estate, then back to Skyline Blvd. I parked my car across the road in the lot for Purisima Creek Redwoods Preserve and hiked in. Soon I was heading east, descending on the Chinquapin Trail, completely blissed out. The experience was lovely and invigorating. What I did not calculate was the loss of daylight because of the forest. Around 5:30 or 6:00 oclock I realized it was getting dark. As I hiked on the trail back to Skyline -- it was so dark I could not see my hand in front of my face. No, I did not bring a flashlight! I said a few non-religious prayers and told myself to keep calm and take it slowly. I remembered that there were steep drops in places and I certainly did not want to take a dangerous tumble. A cool head prevailed (my heart racing though) and soon I could hear traffic on Skyline. It was pitch black however, and I walked along the highway shoulder until I found the lot and my car. I felt lucky, I was really happy. I congratulated myself for acting like an adult.
What a beautiful park! First ... logistics: $6 entry fee, no animals. If you qualify for those, this is a place you must visit. The trails are really well upkept and the picnic areas are numerous and diverse. You can picnic on a blanket in the grass or avoid any crowds and relax under the trees at one of the other picnic areas (you could even come here for a weekend hiking date). There is a ton of tree cover here so its a great place to come on a hot day for either a picnic or moderate difficulty hike. There are a number of shady trails between 1-3 hours depending on how much time you want to spend. I cant wait to come back to this place!
This park is not good for groups who have young kids.. They tend to stop watering the grass area and would not inform at all. When we booked it they showed all the green pastures and told us that it would be exactly like the ones in the pictures. When we went there before our actual date, the grass was completely dry and dangerous for kids to run around. They DO NOT ALLOW Jumpers.. The maintenance of the bbq grills and the benches is the worst. They charge you a lot but do not maintain at all. Very poor maintenance by them.
A very interesting park. It has a natural feel to it in the sense that theres a lot of local plat growth and trees. Theres grass but it doesnt get watered enough (because of the drought). There are plenty of benches to have a picnic but other than that this place is kinda boring. Wouldnt be complaining if it was a regular park but the far drive and then the entrance fee makes a first-timer expect this park to be amazing. However it leaves you with a disappointing feeling and question why you paid so much to get in...
Nice park with extensive picnic and camping facilities. It also has a network of trails in towering redwoods which are cool in the summer and beautiful after winter rains. Even when the picnic grounds are crowded, a hiker can find solitude on the trails. The park also houses a bow and arrow golf course run by Kings Mountain Archery and a section of the Bay Ridge Trail along Skyline Blvd. However, the park does charge $6 for parking thereby losing one star.
Huddart County Park offers many trails for day hikers and trail runners. Situated right next to Phleger Estate (Part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area) enables hikers to enjoy longer hikes by going up through Huddart and coming back down through Phleger Estate. Huddart offers picnic areas and restrooms as well as free parking to seniors!
Lovely, underused park for hiking on Kings mountain and picnics. Also an archery range. No bikes allowed on trails, but you can bike through the park on the road. Biking up from the "service entrance" off Greer Road and exiting at the main entrance 1/3 of the way up Kings Mountain Road will avoid a lot of traffic on the climb of Kings.
7$ a behajtás egy átlagos személyautónak. Nyugodt, erdei környezetben lehet túrázni vagy barbecuezni. A bátrabbak sátorban ott is éjszakázhatnak.
this place is ideal for trail running because it is relatively close to town, there are great slopes, and if you park near greer road, you can enter through the southern border of the park for free. generally running to skyline boulevard is the goal and then coming back down to greer.

There is a $6 fee to gain entry to the entire park. We came here for a kids birthday party held in the West Meadow Picnic Area. It was a very cute area, with long wooden picnic tables under the forest canopy. You can see people riding their horses on the nearby trail.
Sadly I visited this park for the first time to attend a friends memorial service but it was a beautiful place to celebrate his life. Ill be coming back up here to hike. How Ive never been up here is beyond me. Huge park and just beautiful.
Es un lugar fabuloso te conectas ala naturaleza familiar y te llena de tranquilidad
Big, secluded, quiet. Great place to bring groups and there is also a creek that you can splash around in! You can see many animals if you stay long enough and stay quiet. For example, there are bobcats.
This is a great place to go when it gets hot, but you dont want to drive to the beach. The Oak campground has shade and is next to a stream. The entrance fee is $6 and I think that they only take cash.
awesome park! Came here for a family picnic, lots of tables, and it was very shady. They only downside was the bees!! They were all over our food- persistent little guys. But all and all- great park!
Wow, what a positive surprise this big, quiet and well maintained state park was. Many hiking trails, redwoods, picnic areas with several bathroom facilities. Perfect for a day with kids.
Signs labeling the types of trees on the redwood trail were nice to have for educational purposes. Overall its a nice park with short hikes, picnic areas, and views of the Bay area.
Great place for BBQ, several short hikes suitable for kids (3-6 yrs old), small playground, and close to 280. Probably our favorite, easy accessible park near Belmont/San Carlos.
Its a huge park and it very fun but you have to keep an eye on your kids since there is no play ground for them. And you can barbeque outside and eat with family and friends.
Nice park for hanging out, barbeque, Frisbee, etc. The trails there are similar to most of the rest in the Santa Cruz mountains and do not stand out but are decent.
This is a great place for a family BBQ or a quick camp-out. They do not allow dogs, and its really a car camping experience, not really immersive in the trees
Good BBQ places - with water, tables, decent restrooms. But one must leave before 8pm or get ticket - the rangers were strict about it.
Our favorite park for a family hike. Trails are not too difficult / strenuous, and it is mostly shaded so its great even in a hot day.
