Trail shared by Rick Ianniello

A long 4WD road climb with some steep and sandy bits, which could be a fun descent if you didn't want to ride the trail.

Description

The trail starts out in a sandy wash that can be quite a pain without big tires. Once you hit the switchbacks, things get better, though the grade can make things challenging in spots.

At 8,000 feet of elevation, you hit the top of Chipmunk Canyon which is also potentially a hike due to sand, but at this point you're nearing the top.

Soon after you escape the sandy wash, the first opportunity to split off to the Coyote Flat Trail is on your left. Or you can continue right, descend to the creek, and climb all the way up to Coyote Flat, where the upper portion of the Coyote Flat Trail begins its descent.

Nice views, but if you’re looking for an easy climb this isn’t it. Sandy, washboarded and uninteresting biking. Again, really nice views
