    Castle Rock State Park is in the Santa Cruz mountains, I was there today. This event seems to be planned for the Castle Rock Regional Recreation Area in Walnut Creek.

      Patrick, it looks like there was some confusion on the location. I have changed the title to represent the correct park. I would like to plan a hike to the state park in the fall.
