Coyote Mountain—East Approach Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"According to Coyote Mountain’s informal summit register, relatively few people undertake the straightforward but somewhat arduous ascent. Many routes are possible, but most people seem to climb the east slope. Though it’s steep, this is basically a walk-up ascent. Outcrops of solid, desert-varnished rock provide good footing on the lower slopes. Higher up, a veneer of small stones underfoot makes walking difficult. On foot, simply go straight up the steep slope to the west. Scattered shrubs and succulents—like brittlebush, cholla cactus, agave, and creosote bush—cling tenaciously to soil pockets amid the rocks."
