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

I have been here once and it was a very pretty hike. The over looked a marshland and fremont. There are many trails to choose to hike. Some trails have very steep hills. Personally I do not like hiking, but this was an enjoyable hike.

I have been coming here for years with my family. There are many intersecting trails here - some wind between the hills, (which you can easily view on flights coming to the San Francisco/San Jose/Oakland area from the east), some are flat through marshland, & some wind along the western rim of the hills overlooking the SF Bay. There is... More

I've been coming here for years and it is still a great park. Coyote Hills Regional Park is a very nice park to spend a couple of hours in. It offers various hiking trails of different difficulty levels. There are also bird watching opportunities especially between the ponds. Biking is another possibility in this park, there are several paved trails... More

Great fishing if you are using the right equipment and bait, the time is right, it has been planted and you have patience.
