Coyote Hills Regional Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Home to Ohlone Indians for over 2,000 years, Coyote Hills is today a unique place to experience the wetlands of San Francisco Bay. Crossed with a network of hiking and biking trails, the grassy hillsides of the park stand out against the flat low-lying land all around. The marshes and mudflats along the coastline are home to the many insects and marine animals, which serve as the food supply for the wide variety of birds frequently seen in the park. The ride is very flat along mostly paved trails, except for some stretches on loose gravel."

"This route takes you into the park and immediately heads south along the shore of the bay toward the San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge, where you can get off your bike and explore the wetlands and tour the informative visitor center there. Back at Coyote Hills, the rout leads north along Bayview Trail and then out into the bay along the Alameda Creek Regional Trail. Riding along the Shoreline Trail past the salt ponds, you can experience the magnificence of ht bay while you view the Dumbarton Bridge in the distance. The return to the park puts you again on the Bayview Trail as it follows the shoreline. Through the marshes and past the Indian Mount Archaeological Site, you return to the parking lot." Read more

The trails at Coyote Hills are really what you make of them. You can stay on the paved for a nice leisurely and scenic ride or you can head off onto the dirt and find some good climbs and a fair amount of good downhill fun. All in all, it is a very scenic ride and not too bad at all for a little regional park area.
