Gentle climbs, scenic bay views and traces of American Indian heritage await at the west edge of Fremont, California Coyote Hills Regional Park is a great place to introduce a friend to hiking: scenic and steep enough to warm somebody to the idea of nice days walking on dirt. If the modest hills overlooking San Francisco Bay force you to work up a sweat on the way up the Red Hill Trail, you can cool down by walking the wide gravel Bayview Trail along water's edge. Trails on this track: Bayview Trail > Soap Root Trail > Red Hill Trail > Bayview > Lizard Rock Trail > Chochenyo Trail. An enlightening side trip is to the Tuibun Village site east of the marshes near the Visitors Center. The Tuibun Ohlone Indians built a shellmound there 2,000 years ago. If you're feeling really ambitious, take the trail over Highway 84 and check out the birds and other animals at the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge (note dogs aren't allowed there).

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.

Love this place for running. Not to easy with hills but plenty of straight away paths to balance it out.

The bayview trail was paved so it will be great to do during the upcoming rainy season. I somehow got off track so the loop i took was shorter than i would have liked.
