Happen to be in the area and decided to check it out. First time visitor to the area. In my mind, not worth the $6.00 parking fee to enter the recreation area. On the plus side, variety of parking lots available. Unable to comment on...More

This is a must for anyone in the area looking for a scenic, easy walk. Several miles of paved paths, very level, and lots to see.

This place is absolutely perfect for evening relaxed walk. The stretch is really nice and you can go for night drives too.

Strolled through the park on a Monday afternoon and enjoyed seeing all ages playing in the water, on the playgrounds, walking, and biking. A beautiful park set right next to SFO, and you can watch airplanes!

Although close to SFO and Hwy 101 it is peaceful. Lots of green space, adjacent to a golf course and the bay. There are picnic tables, benches and public restrooms. Good views of Oakland and planes landing at SFO.

Coyote point has lots to see and do for all ages. Ample picnic areas, convenient bathrooms, boat harbor, golf course and if you are a shooter there's a rifle and pistol range.

I haven't seen them there, or anywhere in the bay much at all, come to think of it. I'm not sure what maritime rules are with those kinds of craft around shipping channels and "boat" traffic. There are kite surfers at... More

There are several paved walkways up and down the quite steep inclines and thus I would say yes to your question, with the addition that it would be my suggestion not to try it by yourself. Having someone with you would be my... More
