Coyote hills

6 05 2017

A quiet and leisurely sunrise hike with college buddies is perhaps one of the good times one can experience amid the daily buzz. Coyote Hills after the recent abundant rainfall is green and lush, providing magnificent views all around. On this early April hike, we started around 6:30 am and parked just at the intersection of Paseo Padre Pkwy and Patterson Ranch Rd as the park is open only from 8 am. As soon as we slowly made our one mile long way into the park, we were greeted with the surreal sunrise.

And then we were completely taken away by a surprise appearance at the park’s visitor center:

I’m not entirely sure if it’s fortunate or unfortunate, but as we friends caught up with each other with some idle chat and some not, we weren’t entirely focused on the trails we followed. As far as I can recall, we did bits and pieces of Quail trail, Red Hill trail, Nike trail and Bayview trail.

We saw a lot of snails on the trails.

The best part is that the 8 miles we covered seemed to happen almost as a byproduct and the only reason we stopped hiking was the rising heat and our weekend family obligations beckoning us to return. šŸ˜›
