The park has over 250 miles of hiking trails and old ranch roads that can be traveled in all seasons. Hikes in the park range from leisurely loops of a mile and a half with little elevation variations to highly ambitious backpacking loops of 50 miles or more with elevations gains and losses in the thousands of feet. 

On long hikes, be sure to take plenty of water and food. Some of the trails and roads on the more strenuous hikes are incredibly steep, which can make for slow going and trips that take longer than you thought they might. On warm days, take more water than you think you'll need.  Don't forget to carry a map with you. Coe Park is a huge wilderness, and it's not that hard to take a wrong turn and get lost.

Dogs are allowed in the main campground and on the paved road around the Visitor Center and one trail that connects the Visitor Center to the parking lot off E. Dunne Ave.  Dogs are NOT allowed anywhere else in the park.
