Here’s the write-up, which appeared in today’s Eye section of the Mercury News.

The coast side is the obvious choice: cool breezes, spectacular views and a “cultural preserve” with Victorian-era houses, vehicles and farm implements plus and few 21st-century goats, horses and chickens.

The backcountry side is perhaps more rewarding for hiking purists: fewer people, delightful meadows and reasonably gentle grades leading up into hills that brush against forests of redwood and Douglas fir beyond the park’s borders.
