Description

This trail cuts off to the right after the day use area. Ride past the gate and up the fire road. Be prepared for 10-15 mins of steep fire road climbing which will wind you to the top of Coyote Peak.

The views from Coyote Peak are stunning. You get a 360 degree view of the south bay from Morgan Hill all the way up to Moffat Field. Take a breather here before you descend down the gravel fire road towards the start of Rocky Ridge trail.
