Hikes in Uvas Canyon County Park
1 Jan 2012
Uvas Canyon County Park offers a combination of challenging hikes, creeks, plenty of waterfalls, tall trees and well-maintained trails. A short 1-mile "Waterfalls Loop Trail", close to the main parking lot is the only one of its kind in the bay area.
Best Months to Visit: Winters, after rains, when the creeks are flowing with water. There are hikes for everybody, ranging from a short 1-mile hike (Waterfalls Loop) to a challenging 9-mile hike with 3300+ ft elevation gain. We visited Uvas Canyon on 23 January 2010, soon after two weeks of steady rainfall. No trails were muddy. On the whole, it was one of my most pleasant hiking experiences in the bay area.
