Coyote Hills Regional Park was dedicated to public use in 1967. Comprised of nearly 980 acres of marshland and rolling grassland covered hills, this busy park is located along the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay, northwest of the cities of Fremont and Newark. The most popular visitor activities by far are bicycling, walking, bird watching, jogging, nature exploration, and picnicking. Well used every season of the year, spring, summer, and fall tend to be the most popular. But the park's winter beauty is wonderful to behold.
I love this place for a quick hike. It's got a great view of the Bay and the marsh and multiple hikes that you can do. There's hikes that's all flat, one with a moderate incline, and ones where there's 3 steep hills. The place is dog and horse friendly. Lots of places for picnics, bird watching, and biking as well.
I love that you can get cell reception throughout the park so if you want to hike on your own, you'll know help is just a phone call away.
The only major downside here is that the place stinks.
