Trail Information


Deep in the heart of Coyote Canyon is this secret overlanders stop and camping area. Because of the lush desert from the natural springs in the area, Indian Canyon / Cougar Canyon is a must go to place for many adventurous individuals. Indian Canyon backs to Los Coyotes Indian Reservations and has Tin Can Mine and Bennis Bowl, while Cougar Canyon has 100 foot tall waterfalls and lush cottonwood forests. Unfortunately, these areas require hiking to get to, but if you are up for the 10+ mile hike, this is a recommended stop for everyone.
