Route Description for Coyote Loop Trail
The Coyote Loop Trail is a peaceful hike that makes use of a horseback riding park. The loop is easy and laidback and the scenery is pleasant. This trail is heavily trafficked by equestrians, so remember the basics of hiking near horses: don’t come up fast from behind, allow horses the right of way, and announce yourself beforehand to the rider whether coming from in front or behind. If you’re unsure of how to pass a horse, just ask the rider. Remember to keep dogs on leash on this trail.
The loop can be done either clockwise or counterclockwise. Beginning from the trailhead, you’ll follow the coyote signage. The loop hugs the perimeter of the park, so stay to the outside at all junctions. If you’re interested in exploring this forest more, the Raven Trail is a nice option too.
