  • Slight lack of parking during busy times, but the trail up and down the foothills offers some stunning views when you reach he top of the ridge. Great for a hike or trail run, just be prepared for the rocks all over the trail once you begin your ascent.
  • Nice, easy hike. Beautiful view from the Ridge. Beware of rattle snakes though (really). Also, DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED & rangers are there often to enforce this.
  • Awesome trail for training, running the hills for upcoming races.
  • Love this hike. Has a little bit of everything as far as hiking goes.
  • Mountain biking at Coyote Ridge is pretty awesome. A challenging climb & access to Rimrock, Blue Sky, Indian Summer & Devil's Backbone.
