Coyote Trail

Average Rating:    (4.33 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

Coyote climbs to the 4-way interscetion to where it seems everything in Cedro leads to. The trail is single track and in parts is the clay dust, some limestone, loose rocks known as "cedro apples", rock gardens, rutted dried mud runs. Typical of the cedro area. As an option you can ride the dump road - very rocky and challenging to the 4-way, then take the fast Coyote back to your car. this is preferred way for after woork riders or those looking for a short ride.

Summary:
Tech-NA-cal! I rode the jeep road up to the four way and took coyote down, really fun ride but be sure youve got yer wits about ya! not recommended for beginners. The forest service has done a great job of protecting the trails from harm, they put up bike and hike passable barriers.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Tunnel canyon to Otero to West Ridge back to tunnel, well worth the climb.

the big wheels of my 29er make the down way more funner!

Summary:
This is a great trail and should be ridden East to West back to the trailhead. However, I would not rate it a 5

Other recommended trails in the same area:
If you want to ride a 5 banger, try Otero Canyon down from the firetower

Summary:
This is agreat trail, and almost every Cedro ride somehow ends with this tacked on to finish.

The trail lately has had some encroachment from the local idiot kids on the quadrunners at the upper end. But it is just too rocky and challenging that I can't imagine they will be back on the trail. some of the tight tree turns, near the pink/red rocks definately kept those idiots out.

Recommended Route:
Again, i usually finish any Cedro ride with this trail. Or do an out and back - it will be a good challenge after work.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Mighty Mule, Rocky Top, 5-hills of Death, 2 Cabins,
