This California state park has no entrance fee, park your car just off Highway 29 (about 7 miles from Calistoga). There were flyers posted advising to leave no valuables in the car, however no signs or recent car breakins were apparent. The trail to Mt Helena is 5 miles out and back, Table Rock is a more leisurely 4-mile round trip which we chose. After about one mile, no further road noise is audible and it feels like a national park. There are grand views across the terrain, north up to Mount Shasta on clear days, and check out the madrone trees. The path is mostly in the shade and then opens up a little after a mile going through chaparral. A man-made stone labyrinth makes for a nice distraction along the path. Definitely worth a visit - not very crowded during the week.
