8 out of 101: Bayview and Red Hill Loop

Alright hikers! It is time to begin driving out of the San Francisco and south bay area. Hike #7 was the last easy hike in the peninsula. Now we need to move into the other parts of the bay area for those “easy” hikes. This one is still pretty close to us, all you have to do is cross a bridge. Dumbarton…

Hike #8 Details:

Name: Bayview and Red Hill Loop

Level:Easy

Distance: 4.8 miles roundtrip

Time: 2.5 hours

Elevation Change: 200 ft.

"Summary: The home of the Ohlone people for more than 2,000 years, Coyote Hills is now a place to enjoy bay and marsh views and abundant bird sightings." -Ann Marie Brown (Author)

Excerpt: "Situated on your left as you head east across the bay, the park’s tule marshes, creeks, and acres of grassland hills beckon you to pull off the freeway and explore.”

Suggested Plan:
Meet for the hike! Hike...then go home! I believe this is close enough that the drive won’t be long enough that we need to do something else to make the drive worthwhile. Once we begin to explore Napa, well then we will plan some other stuff! :D

Directions:
“From I-880 in Newark, take highway 84 west for two miles. Take the Paseo Padre Parkway exit, turn right (north) and drive one mile to Patterson Ranch Road. Turn left and drive 1.5 miles to the visitor center parking lot at Coyote Hills.” --From Book.

*There is a $5.00 day-use fee per car. Will organize carpool a week before the hike.*

    Nice meeting new people. It was a moderate/easy hike. Although with my out-of-shape endurance, it was just right. Thanks for the setup, Bianca.

    Hi! So. I couldn't find anyone to carpool with. If that happens again, can I maybe invite my roommate so that I can get there?

    Thanks for confirming the times for me Bianca. My whole problem with needing to carpool is I can't drive ....

    Ok I am here....by the visitors center parking. You will pass two parking lots before arriving to the visitor center one. It is the last parking spot on the patterson road.

    I parked in the free parking lot when you turn onto Patterson and am walking further about a mile.

      I am leaving from San Jose, but you two could perhaps head out from Mountain View or if you want to drive south then with me that is cool too, but not really sure if that is a better idea since you probably will have to drive more.

    Quick question...I see the hike at two different times...one at 10:15 am and another at 5:15 pm. Does anyone know what that is about?

    Alrighties...So if anyone wants to carpool let me know. I am actually leaving from San Jose. I forgot I am doing a quick volunteer thing at the DoubleTree by the airport on gateway place. If you are nearby or on the way let me know. I am taking the 880 North up to Fremont.
