In the Diablo Range southeast of San Jose, Coe State Park is our region’s largest park, yet one of our best-kept open-space secrets.

With elevations that range from 750 to 3,560 feet above sea level, and areas that vary widely in temperature and rainfall, this hidden but accessible mountain wilderness hosts a great variety of habitats.
