Features Views

Fremont Older Open Space Preserve is open from sunrise to half an hour after sunset throughout the year. When you get to the end of the trail, there is a gate, beyond which is private property. Please be respectful of the landowners and not enter unless you have permission.

Need to Know

The trail is not shaded, so make sure to wear sunscreen or a hat if you are hiking on sunny days.

Runner Notes

The trail is relatively free of obstacles, so you can enjoy a quick detour from your run on the Coyote Ridge Trail.

Description

The trail from the Coyote Ridge Trail to the FO06 Gate runs along a ridge above Stevens Creek Park and offers views of the South Bay. To access the trail, you either need to climb the Coyote Ridge Trail from Stevens Creek County Park or run out the Coyote Ridge Trail from Fremont Older Open Space Preserve. The trail is a wide dirt trail that drops quickly from the Coyote Ridge Trail and then rolls for roughly half a mile until you reach the boundary of Fremont Older Open Space Preserve.

Views of the mountains above the Stevens Creek Reservoir can be seen on the left side of the trail, and views of the South Bay can be enjoyed on the right side of the trail. In the evenings, you might see a bobcat, deer, or turkeys crossing the trail. Mountain bikers sometimes use the trail as well, so be on the lookout for riders. The trail ends at the boundary of the preserve, so unless you know are a resident or know the landowners, you need to turn around and return the to Coyote Ridge Trail. Its a nice way to get a little extra mileage on your run, especially in the evening.

Flora & Fauna

Bobcat, deer, turkey, and turkey vultures can be seen at various times of the day.
