San Francisco Bay Area Regional Parks

Coyote Hills Regional Park

This is a regional park within the East Bay Regional Park District system. It is located in Fremont near the east side of the Dumbarton Bridge which is the southernmost bridge on the bay. It is a marvellous place to visit for a multitude of wildlife viewing, beautiful vistas, marshlands, nature trails, even some items of interest on local Indian archaeology. Many decades ago the US Nike missiles used to be stored in this area, you can read in the Wikipedia. However, you cannot find any trace of those silos anymore. This park is one of the The Bay Area's best outdoor playgrounds.

Mission Peak Regional Preserve

This is a regional park within the East Bay Regional Park District system. This friendly peak, about 2500 ft high, is situated on the east side of Fremont near Hwy 680 and is within easy (relatively) reach for fit hikers. There are at least three major trails to climb this peak. The most popular (and crowded like crazy in the weekends), as well as the steepest and the shortest, trail takes off from Stanford Avenue. The other two are from Ohlone College and from Sunol. The Sunol trail is the longest (10 miles) and starting from Sunol regional park climbs the peak from behind.

Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge

This is wilderness area within the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service system. It is located in Fremont, California, just south of the Dumbarton Bridge (Hwy 84).
