2) Is it legal to carry the same knife in the trunk of your car anywhere in California ?

3) And in the glovebox is it legal ?

Just asking for not doing anything illegal by mistake.

1) Probably yes - check the website of each park; they seem more wary of firearms.

2) and (3) - the state does not seem to care (unless some state park has such a rule, check the websites), but cities and counties are allowed to have their own laws, so you'll have to check their websites, too.

See also the knife laws sticky -
