The trail includes singletrack but mostly double tracks. Most of this trail is open sky
but there are a few shady spots.

Getting there
Start at Bernal and Heaton Moor Dr. If you follow the sidewalk from Heaton
Moor towards Bernal it will lead you right on the singletrack track trail that will
head up a short but steep hill. Turn right at the top of that hill and follow the
path until the creek to the left seems to end, turn left by the concrete ledge. At
this point you will be on the other side of the creek and the extremely short
path will lead you to an old paved path that heads up the hill. This paved path
will eventually end up being a dirt path after a short ways up. You will get to a
fork and at this point you will stay to the left. Keep climbing up and you will get
to Bernal Rd, you'll have to carry your bike over two logs to get to the street.
Cross the street and continue up the single track, you'll see a trail to the left
(Ohlone Trail) just after the very short climb and this will be the trail that you'll
be heading down on the way back. So stay to the right and continue the climb
up the hill. You'll get to a paved path or old road? that crosses your path but
continue straight going up the hill. You'll start heading down the hill towards
Santa Teresa Park, stay to the left. Stay left at the fork and I think this is where
the name changes to Coyote Peak Trail. I've only been able to make it up a
short ways and then I turn around and head back down the hill the same way I
came up and turn right on Ohlone Trail which is just before Bernal as you're
heading back down. If you get to Bernal then turn around and head up the very
short climb and you'll see it on the left (well worth it). You'll get to one section
with water crossing the path that will lead you up the hill on to a paved road but
make sure you stay to the left on the singletrack. You will be riding along side
Bernal which will be to your left so just keep left at the next two Y's and the
path will dump you on to Bernal. Just stay right on Bernal and it'll take you to
Heaton Moor and Bernal intersection.

    Lots of fun, but there are a ton of uphills. Advantage is that there are a lot of downhills too. There are also a lot of alternate paths you can take as well. But beware, by the area around Leland there is a bee hive you should ignore.

    Jason, it sounds like you're driving up and parking in the lot. I would take stiles ranch instead of hidden springs, climbs are much easier.
    I ride from my house so I start out most likely where you ended up at the bottom and I agree, it's not fun lol but it is doable
