Coyote Peak Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Even on sunny weekend afternoons the trails at Santa Teresa County Park remain uncrowded—a pleasant surprise given the stunning vistas of the Santa Clara Valley. Perched on the urban interface, a hike in Santa Teresa County Park is by no means a backcountry experience. But it’s also by no means unworthy of a hiker’s attention. With views that rival the best in the area, easy access, moderately challenging trails, and dollops of wilderness dropped here and there along the loop, you won’t regret time spent here. The park has a history almost as convoluted as the suburban landscape it rises above."
--Tracy Salcedo-Chourre, Best Easy Day Hikes: San Jose (Falcon Guides).
"Several shady rest stops add interest to this creekside trip."
--Jean Rusmore, Betsy Crowder, & Frances Spangle, South Bay Trails: Outdoor Adventures in & around Santa Clara Valley (Wilderness Press).
"A loop trip takes in vistas from Coyote Peak and returns on a traverse across the north-facing hillside."
