Rooster Comb is a prominent ridge located within Henry W. Coe State Park, east of Morgan Hill, California. Rooster Comb is located within Stanislaus County. Its name refers to the large fleshy red skin atop a rooster's head. The resemblance to a rooster's comb is evident by the large rock formations running the length of the ridge, separating it from the grassy slopes below. This contrast gives the illusion of a rooster's comb.
