Beautiful view of the Bay. Airplanes landing in Oakland airport to the delight of one of my kids, and beautiful wetlands teeming with life to the delight of my other two kids. Cover your head it’s very sunny and not much shade. A nice easy bike ride for kids that still gives them plenty of exercise.

Did a lollipop instead. Very flat and easy. Some shade but pretty uncovered. It was nice because it was breezy. Without the breeze it could have been miserable. Lots of bikers

Coyote Point is a wonderful park to get miles of flat walking or riding a bike in. This is a park I use to frequent many years ago when I lived in San Mateo. The trail can go clear to Foster city, then a short roundabout can get you as far as Palo Alto. Miles of bike trails well paved but often windy near the water. On a clear day, you can see San Francisco. At Coyote Point, the trails are more like walking paths then actual hiking trails. If your looking for a elevation workout then head down to Seal Point Park that connects to Coyote and Ryder Park where you will find a large hill used specifically for elevation workouts. The park is most notable for watching the airplanes land and due to the wind direction, you don’t hear the planes as loudly as one would expect. At Coyote Point don’t miss the many beautiful and very old eucalyptus trees as well. Really nice restrooms with flushing toilets and soap and water! This was a perfect park for a quick walk before having lunch and a perfect in the middle destination if your friends live at a distance. Last, the wildflowers here were beginning to bloom! As I recall, the wildflowers are stunning in the spring here!

This portion of the bay trail is great for meandering. Every morning is different with the tides.

Easy, paved trail with great views of the bay, San Francisco, SFO (including watching the planes taking off and landing). Planes fly right by you and you can also walk by the Coyote Point marina. It is a more heavily trafficked trail, but the path is wide and easily allows for passing.
