Poverty Flat and Los Cruzeros Loop (Backpacking) Professional Review and Guide
"This trip takes you on a circle route around the western area of Henry W. Coe State Park—sampling high ridges, dense manzanita forests, oak savannas, and campsites beside two forks of Coyote Creek. You will climb two of the main ridges that run northwest-southeast, and descend to historic Native American and Spanish explorer sites. In years of plentiful rain, frocks of spring wildflowers clothe the hillsides and swimming holes tempt hot hikers. By skipping the Los Cruzeros night and the exploratory side trips, you could do this trip as an overnight."
