Backpacking trailcamps on the Skyline to the Sea Trail are reservable only by calling (831)338-8861 between the hours of 9am - 5pm. The park has a surprising number of waterfalls, a wide variety of environments (from lush canyon bottoms to sparse chaparral-covered slopes, many animals (deer, raccoons, an occasional bobcat) and lots of bird life (including Steller's jays, egrets, herons and California woodpeckers). The park is also the home to stately redwood groves.
