Been taking advantage of the summer months here at Coyote Point, enjoying bike riding and watching the sunsets. I am rediscovering just how much space Coyote Point has. There are many daily activities here including hikes up in the Eucalyptus tree hills. There are also plenty of shaded areas for private parties which includes day use of their many BBQ grills. Even hot running water with stainless steel sinks for clean up is provided. There are also designated areas for overnight motorhome parki

Really lovely walk conveniently located between San Mateo and San Bruno. It could get a little bit crowded here with folks from older generations to parents with the strollers of a future hikers ;) Just be aware that there are bicycles and roller skaters on this asphalted trail too. Apart of that it is a nice walk that has sun, forest shade, small hills, view of a reservoir and some deers along the way

Great park with a decent play structure, picnic tables and benches, a grassy area and awesome hiking trails with breathtaking views. I went here today for the first time with my 6-year daughter and we had a blast. The Amphitheater Trail is just shy of a mile and twists through some trees up a pretty steep hill until you're at the top. Lot's to see on your way up too- we saw a baby snake, banana slugs, lots of birds and the grizzly bear from The Revenant. The views from the top are awesom
