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.

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.

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.

A longer version of the Bayview trail.
the part on No-name trail is full of birds and is rather long, so biking is a good options. (I hiked this time, but I did bike this trail once).
Very nice sights and wildlife on the trail

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.

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

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.

Great short hike that takes you up to the top with great views of the entire South Bay. There are benches on the hill to sit down and enjoy the view. I warmed up with the Lizard Rock Trail before doing Red Hill Loop to get about 2.5 miles total.
