Collis P. Huntington State Park reviews
Great place for a fall Sunday afternoon hike. Take the dog, your kids (get them off the couch or iPhone) and get outside!

Great selection of trails and difficulty. Typically secluded and very quiet, and also a good option for mountain biking and trail running.

I take my kids fishing here pretty often. It's safe for them and extremely peaceful. Beautiful park and very well maintained!
