Coyote Ridge Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Three miles long, narrow and straight, Coyote Lake is surrounded by oak-covered hills. Although busy with powerboats on summer weekends, there are 5 mph “environmental areas” on either end, and it is one of only two lakes with a campground.

When water levels are high, the Coyote Creek area on the south end is nicest, its cattail marsh full of bird life. On windy days, however, the north end might be a better choice, with the northwest wind at your back on your return to the launch site."

"After a vigorous climb on the 2.6-mile link to the trail’s north entrance, this trip heads south on a relatively level trail with views of the lake, the surrounding foothills, and the coastal mountains."
