If you like steep trails, this is the place. Mt. Madonna Park contains both dense forests and open chaparral.
There are several drive-in campgrounds around the park. Sites are available on a first-come first-serve basis.
Dogs are allowed around the parking lots and in one campground, but not on the trails.
It is possible to walk or bike to Uvas Canyon County Park and the Forest of Nisene Marks State Park from here.
No reservations are accepted.
The entrance is on Highway 152 (the Hecker Pass Highway), between Gilroy and Watsonville, where 152 meets Summit Road.
