Gentle climbs, scenic bay views and traces of American Indian heritage await at the west edge of Fremont, California Coyote Hills Regional Park is a great place to introduce a friend to hiking: scenic and steep enough to warm somebody to the idea of nice days walking on dirt. If the modest hills overlooking San Francisco Bay force you to work up a sweat on the way up the Red Hill Trail, you can cool down by walking the wide gravel Bayview Trail along water's edge. Trails on this track: Bayview Trail > Soap Root Trail > Red Hill Trail > Bayview > Lizard Rock Trail > Chochenyo Trail. An enlightening side trip is to the Tuibun Village site east of the marshes near the Visitors Center. The Tuibun Ohlone Indians built a shellmound there 2,000 years ago. If you're feeling really ambitious, take the trail over Highway 84 and check out the birds and other animals at the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge (note dogs aren't allowed there).

wilderness surrounded by the city life,
anytime I'm tired of the city crowd, this is my hideaway, alongside the Don Edwards wild life refuge

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.
