The Coyote Creek Trail is planned and partially developed as one of the network's longest trail systems, ultimately extending from the Bay to the City's southern boundary. At this time, you can access a northern portion of the trail system from Highway 237 Bikeway to Montague Expressway. A short downtown portion travels through Selma Olinder Park. The southern portion begins at Tully Road and extends southward through county jurisdiction and reaches Morgan Hill. The Coyote Creek Trail provides views of the waterway, and urban and rural settings.
