If you were to frame the perfect desert backpack, it would have a narrow snaking gorge with steep walls, American Indian sites, running water, spectacular views of both high mountain escarpments and desert lowlands, a register to record your crossing over Alcoholic Pass, and segments of total solitude and silence. All of these await you on this trip—a high-quality escape that’s close to civilization. After a day’s workout winding down shaded desert canyons, Coyote Creek will be a refreshing place to cool off. Enjoy the chorus of frogs at the water’s edge.
