Description

Coyote Hills is a regional park with 979 acres of marshland and rolling grassland hills. It's unique for several reasons. All of its wetlands are protected, making for excellent bird watching and animal study. Some 2,000 year old Tuibon Ohlone Indian shellmound sites have been preserved and are accessible for viewing. And the parks trails have wonderful views of San Francisco Bay and Southern Alameda County.

Be sure to visit the Visitor Center which contains great educational displays and exhibits. Many exhibits illustrate the Ohlone way of life. There's even a tule reed boat made by staff and volunteers using Native American methods. Other exhibits show the park's natural history and wildlife. We loved watching the swimming turtle.

The visitor center offers many public and school group programs on a variety of subjects including Ohlone history and culture, animals, marsh ecology and general nature exploration. We attended a program on snakes. The kids were thrilled to handle a snake and learned that snakes can even climb trees!

The most popular hikes are the Marsh Boardwalk walk, the 3.5 mile Bayview Trail, and a hike to the top of Red Hill.
