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
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.”
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
“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.*
