Great views of the San Francisco Bay. This is a place to hike, jog, ride your bike. A historic place where the Ohlone Indians used to live. One can ride their bike for 15 miles around Coyote Hills and then up the Alameda Creek. Good for bird watching.

Nice place to hike, but fairly crowded. Constantly brushing against people walking the other way. But....... Nice views, good trail, etc. I would go back.

Came here in March for some hiking and it was lovely. The weather was perfect, not too hot, not too cold, with little wind. Easy trails, and not too crowded. We hiked from the parking lot to the Dumbarton bridge overpass, the entire route (and back) took us about 1.5 hours. We saw many people bike it, and run it,... More

This is a park near the edge of the San Francisco Bay. It is best to see this park by bicycle. You will be able to see the Ohlone Village, wetlands, the San Francisco Bay and even connect to Quarry Lakes, the other park located east of Coyote Hills. The park also has a visitor center that you can learn... More

I went cycling here, and loved it. It's beautiful, has some free and paid parking, and is very friendly to hikers!

To me, it's the most beautiful park in the greater San Jose area. At the hillside, I could see hills with craggy rocks and the meadow that reaches far. At the hilltop, I was able to view an amazing scenery that surrounds the hills -- wetlands, lakes, Dumbarton Bridge, and over-a-dozen sea-salt farms that wrap the bridge. Birds made the... More

This area is rich in Ohlone history. On a clear day, the views across the bay to Sunnyvale and San Francisco are awesome. Neat history of SALT production. Be careful, the path is shared by runners, bikers and walkers alike.

This is a great place to go and even if you are not a hiker you can start on a pretty flat trail and gradually work your way up. As you get better there are alternate paths that you can challenge yourself and work your way up to a very good work out.

This is an enjoyable large park (978 acres) that has beautiful bike and many wonderful hiking/biking trails. There is wonderful areas for picnics, as well as areas for group fires (i.e. fire ring). There is a small museum with a nice garden area, Ohlone Indian and wildlife exhibits; thre is also a park store. One of my favorite walks is... More

I think it is a nice place to walk around alone with your thoughts, may be have a meditation on one of those hills. I saw some people having BBQ or lunch in the designated areas. Quiet and peaceful place but a bit windy. Nice small museum showing the history of local Indian tribes. 5$ a car admission
