Huddart Park affords over 900 acres of coastal mountain environment for a variety of activities. Many miles of trails afford even the experienced hiker many hours of pleasure. Many of the trails are also open to equestrian use, making this park one of the favorite destinations of the local equestrian community.

The Sequoia Day Camp is a popular location for organized youth activities. Day camps are held throughout the summer by various groups and agencies for thousands of the area's youth.

The grassy meadow just below the Werder Shelter has long been a favorite of park visitors. Its five acres of gently sloping grassy meadow is a popular location to just drive to, park, and spread out for a relaxing picnic.

Drop-in family picnic areas are located in the park, as well as an archery range (maintained by King's Mountain Archery Club in partnership with San Mateo County Parks).
