Starting near the Newark Slough parking lot, the Quarry Trail goes across Hwy 84 to enter Coyote Hills Regional Park. From here, take Apay Way and continue on to Bay View trail, all the while enjoying fine views of the bay from the hills. You can return to Apay Way junction either taking Red Hills trail or looping back by Bay View Trail. Retrace the steps by Apay Way and Quarry trail to reach the starting point.

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 !!

Dog friendly and beautiful! Check for ticks!

Not very pretty for the first 1.5 miles or so then gets quieter and more serene. You can almost forget the city is so near. Good number of steep hills that you can do twice (if you go out and straight back).

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.

An excellent hike with views of SF Bay from Newark. Red Hills trail will offer an energetic workout for those choosing to do it. Detailed Blog: http://shompens.com/canvas/1467243939417
