Overview

Can be closed for fire danger during summer months, check with the ranger station.

Description

Smooth, rolling singletrack characterizes this trail. Much of the time you are working up or down shallow canyons as you contour around the north side of Cedro Peak. Further into the trail you do hit a few rockier spots with ledges and baby heads to deal with, but all in all it is a great section of trail in either direction.

One end is at the gated end of the road leading up from the parking area and the other is at the 5-corners area. There is one tricky intersection early in the trail: if coming from the parking area go LEFT. If you continue straight you end up on trail 5620 (which is signed).

This trail is GREAT downhill! It seems to be in worse condition every time I ride it, due to the motos, but it's always a blast! I can only imagine how fun it would be in prime condition. As it is, there are a ton of loose rocks, and lots of loose dirt, but with careful line choices, it is still very good. Sep 2, 2013


I rode the Coyote trail today and had a blast. The only con was the ocassional motos. The trail offers a good mixture of climbing and fast smooth runs. The main trail marker is hidden behind a tree so make sure to keep going straight at the intersection where Chamasiso & Coyote cross. I got lost the first time because of this. Apr 13, 2014
