Home / Mojave Preserve and Desert bikepacking trips / 2008: Bikepacking in Henry Coe State Park / Day 8: China Hole, Henry Coe State Park, to home in downtown San José by bicycle, via Coyote Creek Trail 21

The swelling on the bottom of my foot makes hiking the bike for a few miles up out of the canyon at China Hole really awkward, but I limp along and enjoy the ride back down to Silicon Valley afterward. 43.7 bicycle miles.

Fortunately, no big Henry Coe brush fire has started this morning while I hike and bike up Manzanita Point Road toward headquarters, which is what happened while I was leaving the Park on this same route at the end of last year's trip.
