Park
“With barbecue pits, a playground, grassy meadows, and hiking and riding trails, Huddart Park makes a great place to have a picnic or explore a redwood forest. Huddart Park offers numerous trails, some for horseback riding and hiking, and some for hiking only. Trails run along gulches and creeks, others traverse unique hillside habitats and lead you to breathtaking views of the countryside.”

“Unique to this area; Redwoods. Smell the forest as you hike surrounded by beautiful, dense Redwoods. Wear pants and the use of bug repellant is advised. Poison oak is also present "if you see three (leaves clustered) let it be", but it is beautiful.”
