Part of the YMCA of the Rockies Trail system.

Description

This trail starts half way up the Waterfall trail. It begins with a good side hill climb through open areas and continues onto a ridge. From the ridge you get excellent views.

The trail dives into a mostly dead lodgepole pine forest as it starts to descend. Tight rutted turns and a switch back lead you to the Coyote Tooth lookout. Back track to the trail and follow some more tight turns through the spruce trees, into the aspens until the trail dumps you out on the Nordic System.

We are staying at the YMCA and I wanted to check out the trail. There is a turnoff the main Waterfall trail (which has a no biking sign). I was able to access the trail by staying on the main road and then doing some bushwhacking off county road 53 but still had to access some of the Waterfall trail. The Coyote trail is overgrown with vegetation and lots of downed trees. It looks like it has not been ridden for quite some time. I was riding by myself so I only did the first half mile and then turned around as I did not want to put myself in a undesirable situation and I am not sure if it is a legitimate trail currently.
