The park has several small waterfalls, some of which flow perennially. It is relatively close to San Jose and Silicon Valley. It facilitates picnics, hiking and overnight camping. It is one of the few parks in the area that allows dogs in the campgrounds.Access to Uvas Canyon County Park is via Croy Road, a two-lane paved secondary road off Uvas Road with no outlet that narrows to a single lane within the small private community of Sveadal, just before the park entrance.

  • It is great, lots of different teranes. Lots of shade and sun. Not that easy for very young children to do the hills and the valleys. 
  • Uvas Canyon is a pleasant park to hike in. The trails are of average length Take plenty of water Some hills are steep 
  • My husband and I were there today morning and it was really very nice. The trail is pleasant and a bit in the Schwitzen.Es all is well signposted and we have enjoyed the fresh air and the shadow.

  • The scenery is so beautiful. And it's so peaceful there. The only thing is the bees. If you are going to have a picnic or bar b que be prepared for the bees.
  • I parked on summit rd and hiked down knibbs knob trail down to the park. It was a brutal hike, crazy steep. Only do that trail if you want some pain. The swarm of gnats and biting flys keep you going. The waterfalls are ok. The terrain is dry so its dusty and not very lush. In case you were wondering there is access on the santa cruz side off of summit rd. I would not recommend this hike though unless you really want a workout.
  • I absolutely love this park. The waterfalls are great to hear and see as you walk through the area. The area is clean and parking is fairly ample. The only downside is paying for parking but its a small price to pay for enjoy the beauty of this park.
  • Although it was hot and the middle of summer when I went here, the stream and waterfall were still running which was awesome. I am a hiking enthusiast, the hikes in the park are moderate, nothing that's going to wear you completely out but still, pretty good. I look forward to returning after it has rained in the spring
  • One of my favorite parks for hiking or camping. The facilities are fairly new. Best time for hikes is in early spring to see the waterfalls in all their glory.
