San Francisco, CA: Morgan Territory Regional Preserve

ca

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 5.8 miles


Hike through a wooded ravine to an overlook with expansive views of Mount Diablo on this 5.8-mile loop in Morgan Territory Regional Preserve.
  • Trail Views
  • Overlook

From the parking lot next to Territory Road, hike north on the Coyote Trail for 800 feet to a trail fork. Bear left at the junction to start the loop. The trail immediately drops 500 feet in one mile as it descends a wooded ravine. After 1.2 miles, the trail becomes faint as it travels across a field. From here, it’s a steady climb to an impressive overlook—the northernmost point on the hike—where you’ll find views of rolling foothills and Mount Diablo. The return route winds to the south for 3.1 miles and passes several more overlooks and clumps of scrubby chaparral. Complete the loop at Waypoint 2, then retrace your steps to the trailhead.
