With its striking hills, scenic shoreline, preserved wetlands, native village site, and Visitor Center, Coyote Hills offers something for everyone. The varied, almost otherworldly landscape of the park makes for a good spot to get away for the day. The bay side of the hills is often windy, but brave the gusts, and you’ll be rewarded with sights that may awe and inspire you. 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. Park Hours: Nov-Apr 8am – 5pm; May 8am – 7pm; Jun-Aug 8am – 8pm; Sept 8am – 7pm; Oct 8am – 6pm Fees: $5/vehicle; $2/dog
Note: Dogs must be leashed and under control at all times.

Very little shade but decent breeze. Paved most of the way. Lots of water fowl. A pretty day.

Had to park outside, because the parking lot was closed. So, didn’t make it into the loop trail. Still, it was nice walking the circuit.

This hike blew my expectations away. Gorgeous views and wide variety of wildlife. Informative signs everywhere. Saw American white pelicans, other cool birds, a caterpillar, sheep, cows, ducks, unique flowers, and more. Check out the area to the right of the visitor center before embarking on the hike.

dog friendly, lots of trail options nearby if you want to make your hike longer or shorter

Nice views after a mile into the hike. It took little over three hours for us to complete this hike. We took the apway -> red hill trail while coming back. Found red hill trail more hard than the apway trail. Would recommend to start as early as possible before the sun gets on you. Would go again !!

tons of beautiful mustard flowers...Seems like head winds both out and back. Very light usage for much of the trail.

Great trail with a beautiful peak and a ton of birds and butterflies!! A little over 3mi in the main trail was closed but a smaller trail will switchback down the hill to meet with the outlined train again. Definitely worth the views.

Super windy on Bay side. Major allergy attack. Lots of people hiking into the park which is 1.5 miles in itself. Took an extra hike up the hill. Nice views both Bay side and towards the hills behind Fremont.

Dog friendly and beautiful! Check for ticks!

We did this trail in the early morning while the sun was still behind the morning clouds. The trail had a nice view of the hills and of the bay. We enjoyed the many wildflowers in bloom and saw lots of birds.
