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.

Not my fav. I ran it a few times only because it was local. The views are chill, but for a person that likes to jog/hike this hike kinda sucks lol. Smells like shit and there's very little shade. I almost got sprayed by a skunk, I probably cleared all the spider webs one morning lol.

This was a fun bike ride. The wind was blowing hard toward the south-east as it frequently does. This made the Bayview trail tough sledding. For this reason, I chose to do the loop counter-clockwise to take advantage of the tailwind on the back nine.

There is a series of switch backs that takes you up the hill to the Red Hill trail (see my track). Then it's a series of ups and downs akin to riding a roller coaster, which was a blast! And don't forget to stop at the top and take in the views, because they are fantastic! I like when you're going down a steep hill and can see where the path is headed. And better yet there is an uphill on the other side that will slow you down so you don't need to use your brakes at all.

The tailwind made coming back on Bayview trail a breeze, literally and figuratively. The recording shows that I topped out at 23 mph, and I was in a middle gear not really pushing hard at all.

I did the loop on a Trek 7.2 hybrid with trail tires. A mountain bike would be preferred on Red Hill. You can ride a road bike on Bayview, but I wouldn't recommend it for Red Hill.

My favorite running trail - expansive views, varied terrain (several other hillier trails connect to this one).

An excellent hike with views of SF Bay from Newark. Red Hills trail will offer an energetic workout for those choosing to do it.
