Trail shared by Brock Warner

A cliffside trail that's not for the faint of heart or those who lack confidence.

I started this route at the very top, coming off of Atwood Road. There is no parking on Atwood Road. You'll probably connect with this trail from one of the other trails at the top.

Description

This trail hugs the cliff of the Coyote Wall as often as it can. Occasionally it will overlap the ghost of a nearby doubletrack before snaking back out to the edge.

This trail is mostly very narrow and steep and the turns are usually cut pretty deep. Much of it is very close to the edge of the Coyote Wall, which has a drop of several hundred feet, which makes this trail all the more dangerous. This is a trail to be careful on! Sections can be easily walked if necessary, just make sure to dismount carefully if you're by the edge.

Other than a map at the parking lot, there is no signage in the Coyote Wall Trail system. It's not too easy to get lost, but be sure to download the MTB Project mobile app, bring a map.

Don't be afraid of this trail. The reviewer was correct that there is a deathly drop, but I have descended this many times & the trail is wide enough that I can always stay a safe enough distance that I am not worried about the possibility of falling off. The trail is anywhere from 8-20 feet wide in sections & always at least 10 foot from the edge. So there are many options on how to descend Oct 16, 2016

I did not enjoy this trail. Most of the trail was spent riding in a gutter width trough with some baby head size rocks and riding the brakes. This trail is just not designed for bikes esp if you want to go fast. Not technical, just really annoying. Not worth riding once. The view is cool but not worth the effort. Nov 6, 2016
