#1 of 14 in Things to do in Fremont
Coyote Hills Regional Park was dedicated to public use in 1967. Comprised of nearly 978 acres of marshland and rolling grassland covered hills, this busy park is located along the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay, northwest of the cities of Fremont and Newark. The most popular visitor activities by far are bicycling, walking, bird watching, jogging, nature exploration, and picnicking. Well used every season of the year, spring, summer, and fall tend to be the most popular. But the park's winter beauty is wonderful to behold.

  • Great place for a run. It's particularly beautiful after the rain has allowed for vegetation and grass to grow. They also now have paved trails so you don't have to fight through mud this time of year. Do be warned that they charge $5 if you want to park inside the park. So I'd recommend parking outside and walking in.
  • Visited the park in April and it was amazing. The park has many trails and we opted for Bayview trail, which is stroller friendly and around 3 miles. There was lot of greenery and wild flowers as it was spring. Since it's closer to Bay, it's quiet windy. It's an ideal trail to bike with kids too. A gem so close to the city!
  • Good place for a easy hike. Very bad restrooms. Suitable for walking with kids. Best place for bike ride. Beautiful scenic views. There is no tree, so no shadows. I don't recomment for hiking in summer or you should plan accordingly. You should take water and food. Parking space is there.
  • If you enjoy birding there are usually a reasonable number of bird species to be seen. Have been coming for 25 years and always enjoy the quieter areas. If you don't want too many clambering kids to spook the birds try coming during the middle of the week. The price to use the facility is ridiculously high, and the staff is reasonably friendly. The facilities are old and worn out, but if you are coming for the birding...
  • Nice park.. beautiful bay views and the area.. good for bird watching.. multiple trails which are mostly easy .. calm place to go on a walk.. There is car parking fee of $5 here..
