Coyote Hills is right on the edge of the bay and before we got there we were like, hills? At the edge of the bay? Yup. Hills. Right on the edge of the bay. There is actually marshland inland from the hills that are more in line with what I was expecting.
But we were drawn to the hills which are covered with interesting looking rocks. We go up and down a couple of the hills and check out the interesting geology.
This is also a good place for bird spotting and biking. There is a bayside trail that is busy with walkers and bikers because it is well paved and has such a nice view of the bay.
If you choose this area to hike, recognize that the hiking map does not have topography and parts of the trail are very steep!
