Coyote and Squirrel Trails

Coyote and Squirrel Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Coyote Trail winds past limestone caves, through a lush riparian and forested area, then above for a birds-eye view of Rifle Falls. Kids of all ages will love exploring the caves. Bring a flashlight for the largest one. Squirrel Trail crosses East Rifle Creek and winds through Gambel oak forest to the base of a red sandstone cliff.

The trail continues along the Grass Valley Canal, which takes water to Harvey Gap Reservoir. Hiked together, the trails make a lopsided figure eight through a naturally and historically interesting area along East Rifle Creek."

This is not a difficult set of hikes but with small children, it's enjoyable. There are a lot of interesting pieces--caves, waterfalls, etc. that keep them entertained. It's quite a drive out to the campground so you might want to make it an overnight trip. But fun for sure.
