Huddart Park Brochure

This was a surprisingly great area to hike in. The trail is primarily shaded by large trees, mostly redwoods and it was altogether cool there. I hiked in shorts and a fleece pullover. A great escape for people in the hotter areas of the bay area, I’m sure. A prerequisite: You have to not mind sharing the road with bicycles on the way in and out. It did look like a great area to ride in also, which explains that large amount of bicyclists on the roads.

I parked at the trailhead of the Dean Trail and believe that I hiked that entire trail and a good portion of the Crystal Springs Trail as well. The area is full of redwoods and I really didn’t see that much poison oak.

There are a lot of picnic areas around, although they are distant enough from the trails I took so that you’re not walking by people bbq’ing or anything like that. One of them in “Madrone Area” served as my lunch spot. I had a delicious “Sleeper” from a local favorite deli: Darby Dan’s.
