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.

Great trail with good views. It is mostly flat so I would consider it as easy and not moderate. There are lot of trails inside coyote regional park so keep an eye on the path for this trail.

A nice and easy short walk in the fall. It brown almost everywhere and the water level in the marshes has receded but the water is not totally gone.

Couple benches and trash cans on trail. Pretty view of the cities. Paved trail but can go off onto dirt trails. Highly recommend.

This trail is stinky because it’s next to a marsh. Plus, there is no shade. I did not enjoy the walk because it was hot and the smell gets really pungent the longer you go. I will not go back there.

Love this trail! It's super easy and fun with my little human and dog. If you live in the area get the parks pass and parking is free. Also allows you to do all other east bay parks

Quaint little park. There is a $5 fee and the best way to avoid is to park half a mile outside the park and simply walk into it. Plenty of parking (and roadside parking) available. There are only a handful of easy to moderate trails, really good cycling track!

Good trail. Although there's a section running along the highway.

Bay view hike with sheep

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 !!

Pretty awesome minus the horrendous smell of the bay for about half the trail.
