It's Saved By Nature's first public hike!

Come enjoy the wildflowers and a 4-mile leisurely hike along Coyote Ridge before reaching an outlook where we will sit to have lunch. It’s a spectacular view, picturesque, overlooking the San Felipe Ranch, a personal retreat for Silicon Valley pioneers Bill Hewlett and David Packard for more than four decades — it was originally purchased in 1954 as a place they could escape the pressures of Silicon Valley to hunt wildlife deer, elk, mountain lions and other animals that roam around Mount Hamilton. the 28,539-acre ranch is about the same size as the city of San Francisco and through a donation now belongs to the Nature Conservancy.

Coyote Ridge Open Space Preserve connects to the San Felipe Ranch which connects to Henry W. Coe State Park which connects to Grant County Park, preserving a 60-mile corridor of open meadows, grasslands, oak savannas, and woodlands.

Coyote Ridge plays an important role as connectivity, crucial habitat for endangered species like the Bay Checkered Spot Butterfly and is an important buffer between wildlife and human infrastructure such as highway 101.

Parking is at Metcalf Motorcycle Park 300 Metcalf Road San Jose, CA 95138 (we are hiking from here)

Please bring a lunch, hiking shoes/boots, a hat, and a light rain jacket just in case.

If a hike is cancelled due to adverse weather, we will notify you by email the night before.

Coyote Ridge is currently closed to the public, you can visit with a Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority Docent or Staff by appointment only.
