6. Warm Springs Trail - Fremont

Overview Map Highlighting Warm Spring Trail in Fremont

1.3 miles one way

Amenities and Uses
Hiking and bicycling only. No pets.

Trail Surface
Flat, compacted gravel road.

This trail provides hikers with views of one of the last remaining vernal pools in South San Francisco Bay and the largest area of seasonal grasslands on the refuge. These vernal pools protect the endangered Contra Costa wallflower and vernal pool tadpole shrimp, and the federally-threatened California tiger salamander. Wildflower displays can be spectacular in spring. Burrowing owls, a Species of Special Concern, and the occasional peregrine falcon and golden eagle can sometimes be seen here in the winter. The trail ends at the brown metal gate.

Directions to Trailhead
From HWY 880, exit at Fremont/Cushing Pkwy. Turn right onto Cushing Pkwy. Drive 0.5 miles until you see a blue metal gate on the left, immediately after the last building. There is no public parking nearby.
