Coyote Hills has a numerous hiking trails with a variety of intensities. Almost all trails provide you with spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay as well as hundreds birds on the Pacific Flyway. It's a lovely amenity in the East Bay / Fremont. Its only drawback is the size of its crowds on weekends and holidays. But you can... More

The place has very good trails around hills with good combination of challenging and easy walking. Walking up the hills will give you a spectacular view of the bay. If the up hill walking is too much for you, there are some trails are very flat. You can pick the trail based on your preference. There is also big marsh... More

We hike at Coyote Hills quite often. This is a very pretty park with a variety of hiking trails along the Bay and the wetlands. We view many shore birds and wildlife during our hikes. This is one of our favorite East Bay Parks. They also have some nice picnic areas, a park store and small museum, a group camp... More

Nice local park with great trails and views of the bay. Good elevation changes for a relatively small area. Good place to be able to see several different ecosystems.

I have been to Coyote Hills during every season. This place has it all & for every age group. If you are looking for a short nice nature walk or a 3-4 hr hike or a biking trail. Great views, breeze and birds.

Coyote Hills Regional Park is a challenging hike but well worth the effort in rewarding and magnificent views! We hiked up and down a series of rolling hills and atop each hill, we were rewarded with views of the bay and even the San Francisco skyline in the distance. An absolutely wonderful hike and we started and ended at the... More

It's a 3 mile circuit around the hills, or a shorter walk on to the marsh, but there are birds of all kids, everywhere, and a short drive from city life. A great place to picnic if you get here early enough. A nice visitor center and a butterfly garden in back. Views of the Bay and the city from... More

It would be an ideal place to hike and even have a picnic but for the foul smell. Beautiful nature reserve overlooking the Bay and on a clear day downtown San Francisco is also visible.

Although not a large park, Coyote Hills has a something for everybody. You can do an easy hike through the marshes, or around the hills to the salt flats, or a more strenuous "up and over". Lots of marsh birds on the inland side. On the bay side, you will see pelicans and wading birds. I've also seen eagles and... More

This is a wonderful park with different birding experiences in different seasons. There are a number of destinations depending on your target birds. The main marsh in fall/winter is incredible if it has rained, with thousands of ducks and shorebirds.
