Collis P. Huntington State Park reviews
If you are thinking of hiking, running, biking, canoeing or going for a walk with the puppies Huntington state park is an awesome spot for all of those activities. Bike riding is nothing but the best here. Rides can range from 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the network of trails you choose to go on. I love this park.
Overall an excellent state park. Hiking was easy and definitely good for beginners. Longish trails for people that want a longer hike. The trails are large enough to accommodate bikes. Parking was easy and straight forward. Be mindful of bugs and mosquitos.
