Kayak Put-In Info for: Dixon Landing, Milpitas

SF Bay Kayak Put-Ins OverviewOverview: Canoeing or kayaking the Coyote Creek from Dixon Landing is a wonderful experience. The Creek takes you through a wooded section full of towering trees and through tullie reeds. The birding is excellent. Or you can head the other direction. The Creek gets wider and deeper as you head to the SF Bay. It winds around the trash dump of Newbie Island. Its a good trek to the bay, though. Not smelly. Definitely an urban water experience. You paddle under several bridges, including highway 880. Enjoy surprising ducks, swallows, egrets, herons, black birds and more. Its guaranteed you will be the only ones on this waterway.
