Mayyan Ooyakma, (the Muwekma Ohlone word for Coyote Ridge) is a new Open Space preserve formed to protect the area’s rare grassland habitat and its endangered fauna and flora. We will be hiking on the short 1,000 ft Overlook Trail (Máyyan Wáayi). This trail begins near the parking area and continues as a gentle slope through a meadow and then climbs to a spot overlooking the Coyote Valley. A butterfly pass is not necessary for the Overlook Trail Hike, it is only required if hiking in the butterfly habitat area. See trail map for details.
FYI, there is shade and views the for those who wish to stay close to the parking area.
Note: Inclement weather will lead to preserve closures. For up to date Máyyan Wáayi (Coyote Valley) Overlook Trail conditions please consult https://www.openspaceauthority.org/preserves/conditions-guidelines.html
Attendance: Attendance is free and is open to all SCVWS members.
