This was a breathtaking hike. I loved seeing the animals and birds along the way. On my trail up the hill I saw a herd of sheep being moved through the mountain which is a rare sight to see because they all walk behind one another. There must have been 200 of so if them herding. I even saw a Mama and her baby. Beautiful sight and views are spectacular! After finishing the hike I ended up hiking 3.2 miles as I parked outside the gate. Before 8am.

This was a beautiful hike. I saw birds, pelicans, rabbits and deer on this trail. The gate opens at 8am for cars but you can park further away if you want to start earlier like I did. No lizards on trail and I was totally ok with that.. There were a few hikers early in the morning which surprised me. No dogs allowed, so leave your furry friend at home.

It's moderate hiking distance with nice bay view. Parking at the Don Edward San Francisco National Wildlife Refuge visitor center area. At the end of no name trail (intersection with end of Alameda Creek trail, it is good place to see the 92 (San Mateo) bridge and 84 (Dumbarton) bridge, and it is very beautiful looking back to coyote hills.

Four stars for the paved roads, nice facilities (there's a visitor's center and restrooms, a garden, and a picnic area) and the beautiful views of the bay. Negatives are that the smell is truly awful (a marsh is a marsh) and it's not really a hike, more of a walk. Not a lot of elevation gain.

Beautiful trail.

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.

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

The last time I hiked this trail was 30 years ago. The trail is still the same but most of the trail is now paved and lots more new trails cutting through this main trail. We chose to do the incline part first up the steps to re-enact my first hike up here. The views of the bay, the meadow, the eucalyptus trees, and the sight of a herd of about a couple hundred sheep homing was a plus. Though it's the dry season, the smell of licorice along the trail was a nostalgic reminder of the good ol' days.

Beautiful trail with lots of scenery to enjoy and piers to take restful breaks on. The marsh smells, well, like a marsh... So just expect nature to be itself. The paved roads were mildly bumpy, but not enough to discourage cycling.

wilderness surrounded by the city life,
anytime I'm tired of the city crowd, this is my hideaway, alongside the Don Edwards wild life refuge

One of the most scenic places. Not too many people on weekdays. A great way to spend your day.

Great View. Fun trail to walk. I suggest combining it with Red Hill Trail to get a bird’s eye view of the bay. For a full day hike you can start at the end of Alameda Creek trail and Beard Staging center or Quarry Staging center. Take the spur off at Alameda Creek Trail and go up to the top of Red Hill. On the back side of Red Hill is the Dairy Glen center which has a bath room, bbq pit, water fountain and pavilion. The hills will give your quads a good work out. They are steep so coming down can be rough on the knees.

Easy to vary your route. Lots of side trails. Very beautiful views of the Bay

Amazing view

Real nice 4-5 mile loop. We had plenty of fun, located rabbits, gophers, a variety of birds. You can turn this into a reasonably moderate hike by climbing some of the hills (while they are not on the trail path).

Easy trail, lots of lovely views. I went when it was overcast so it was super cold.

This trail would be ideal for a dog walk or a quick run.

I wish I had taken some photo's to share with you all.

Not as nice as some of the other trails at Coyote Hills. Very short hike with not much elevation change, so perfect for beginners. There are no dogs allowed on Lizard Rock trail. My suggestion would be to start with this trail then hike up Red Hill Loop.
