Park Features: This stunning 1,249-acre regional park provides tremendous views from the tops of the East Bay hills. The plateau rises quickly and steeply from the bay plain and towers over one thousand feet above the cities below, overlooking Niles Canyon, Fremont, Union City, Newark and the San Francisco Bay beyond. Atop the plateau a pastoral landscape predominates, and golden eagles, hawks, deer, bobcats, frogs, snakes and a variety of other animals make their home in the open grasslands, ponds and steep wooded canyons. These characteristics make the park a great place for outdoor recreation and nature appreciation on the urban/ wildland edge. Open 8:00 am to SUNSET (varies seasonally)

Hardly saw anyone else on the trail on a weekend! If you are looking for solitude highly recommend this trail.

Views of Fremont, mission peak, Sunol peak. Trails are not well maintained like other regional parks but it not easy to get lost.

fantastic views

Nice hike, great views and amazing birding. My photos are from two different visits;)

Quick and easy with kids (who regularly hike) from ages 3-6. On the day we went it was clear enough to catch a peek at the City.
