Once an island in San Francisco Bay, Coyote Point is separated from the mainland by salt marsh. In the 1800s, the marsh was filled to create pastureland. The area was later used as a wharf for freight.
Today, Coyote Point’s windy, salty environment supports distinctive stands of eucalyptus and Monterey cypress. Remnant salt marsh, the beach promenade, the marina, and the breakwater provide habitat for a number of native shorebirds and songbirds.
The rugged, windy Recreation Area is mostly flat, with a knoll that offers lovely vistas of the Bay. The 0.9-mile paved Bluff Trail takes you from the visitor entrance to the overlook.
This hike is listed as One-Way.
