Hike: Henry Cowell State Park (near Santa Cruz)


Join us for a great hike among the redwoods on Saturday, June 21st! Henry Cowell State Park has beautiful creekside trails, and is nice and cool even on hot days because of the awesome shelter from the redwoods. We will be doing an easy trail, so all hikers are welcome! For more info on the park, check out: http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=546

There's also a "Roaring Camp" area nearby that's kind of cool and we may choose to explore: http://www.roaringcamp.com/town. Most likely though, we won't have time. 

We will have a late lunch after the hike most likely in Santa Cruz, and then return to San Jose soon after.


10 am to carpool (departing promptly at 10:15 am)

11 am if you're meeting us there (hiking begins promptly at 11:20 am so make sure you're not late!)

Important Note: cell reception is spotty in the park, so please plan ahead.  


• Water! (Camelbaks encouraged)

• Sunscreen, hat and sunglasses 

• Snacks (trail mix, beef jerky, nutrition bar)

• Hiking or tennis shoes 


Want a ride there? We will be meeting at South Bay Church at 10:00 am and will be departing promptly at 10:15 am. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a seat to anyone who is late.

Meeting us there? Meet us at the Visitor's Center @ 11 am in the main parking lot. 


If you are carpooling, we suggest donating $5 to your driver for gas and parking fees. Most of us have Venmo or Paypal so you can just send us the amount. 

If you are driving, there is a $10 cash parking fee per car.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
