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).

The gate at the end of the Coyote Trail, the road beyond is just a little loop pullout, Rd 462 is just beyond the trees and you continue straight across that.
