Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont

If you are looking for a magical place where you can be surrounded by natural beauty and wildlife and engage in a few outdoor activities, head on over to Coyote Hills Regional Park in Fremont, California. Just under 1,000 acres of grass-covered hills and marshlands create a popular place to spend a day, weekend or week at. Although the park is open all four seasons, most will agree that it is most picture-worthy in the winter. If you are after wildlife, you will want to visit every season as some become more active than others at different times of the year.


A Project Nike missile base was once located where the park currently is. There are actually still intact facilities and radio transmission stations in place. When the base was decommissioned, the area was occupied by the Stanford Research Institute, which conducted research in the marshlands, using them to harbor marine animals. This even included dolphins! In 1967, the park became open to the public, and the local community couldn’t be more pleased.


  • Biking – Coyote Hills Regional Park offers both paved and mountain bike trails, making it the perfect location for an entire family or the thrill-seeker looking for adventure.
  • Hiking – Taking the time to hike the trails awards you with some of the most beautiful views in Fremont, California. The Bayview Trail is 3.5 miles long and paved while the Alameda Creek Trail is around 12 miles, and is the perfect place to take your dog for a long walk.
  • Camping – Overnight camping reservations must be made at least 14 days in advance at the group site.
  • Picnicking – You do not have to engage in physical activity to enjoy the park. Plenty of people come here simply to have a picnic. Tables can be found in the Quarry Staging Area or Visitor Center. There is also a group site that can be reserved, called the Hoot Hollow Picnic Area.
  • Naturalist Programs – The park offers naturalist programs on a few different subjects, including birds and butterflies, Native American history and culture and marsh ecology. Schedules are available on bulletin boards, at the Visitor Center and in the park’s monthly newsletter.

Park Features

  • Visitor Center – This is not your average Visitor Center with maps and brochures. Here you will find a nature store where you can buy souvenirs as well as educational exhibits and displays.
  • Nectar Garden – A beautiful butterfly and bird nectar garden is open Wednesday through Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm. The park offers naturalist-led educational programs throughout the year.
  • Archaeological Sites – The Ohlone Indian sites offer a reconstructed tule house, pit house, sweat lodge and shelter.
  • Wildlife Refuge – The U.S Fish and Wildlife Service operates the refuge. Access is granted via the Alameda Creek, Apay Way, No Name and Shoreline trails.

Whether you live Fremont, California, or are visiting the area, the Coyote Hills Regional Park is a must-visit! They ask that pets be on a leash, and while you are driving, be prepared to stop for ducklings and lizards crossing the road.

Please let me introduce myself, I am Joseph Sabeh, Jr a full time licensed professional realtor. I have been with Executive Homes Realty for over 13 years and was trained by my late father and Broker, Joseph Sabeh. I recently incorporated the company and we moved the office to 43513 Mission Blvd just last summer. I could not have found a more honorable place to work. After earning my experience selling high end Ralph Lauren suits and studying business management in southern California, I decided to pursue my dream of selling real estate and working with my father. He had already had such an excellent reputation and established a niche market of high end clientele that catered to the very best. I wanted to become the consummate professional just like him and have strived to become just that being just a phone call or email away from getting back to my client’s immediate needs! Known by my clients for my tenacity, perseverance , and excellence in negotia- tion(Certified Negotiation Expert), I have always strived to meet my clients high demands and goals. As a result of my professionalism, I have achieved an extensive portfolio of referrals from past and present clients. I credit my current values from my upbringing of my parents and the credit is due to them without question. Their integrity, pride, and willingness to sacrifice for the better of my life and my sister’s always left a mark on me that one day I will pass on. Their desire to achieve a better life and live it to the fullest is one that some families dream of and I certainly am appreciative of all of the education and etiquette I have learned from them both. I have sold condos up to 3.2 million dollar homes and I am here for any and all of your future real estate needs and wishing you the very best experience in your future real estate endeavors with me.
