Coyote Ridge Open Space Preserve comprises 1,831 pristine acres located in the Diablo Range foothills in southern Santa Clara County. The preserve offers spectacular wildflower displays paired with stunning views over the Coyote Valley. The rare serpentine grassland provides critical habitat for over a dozen threatened and rare species, including Bay checkerspot butterflies, Metcalf Canyon jewelflowers, burrowing owls, golden eagles, and more.
