Highlight: Coyote Canyon
Nestled in the Coyote Hills between the Quebradas Backcountry Byway and Johnson Hill Road, lies a narrow one-mile passage known as Coyote Canyon. Flood waters from area rains follow this groove in the Earth from ATV Pass down to the Arroyo del Coyote, giving life to the many juniper trees and other flora found here. The trail makes for a challenging drive but it is quite scenic and secluded. It's also a great choice for some hiking, rock hunting, camping, or photography. In addition to amazing exposed geological features and beautiful landscapes in Coyote Canyon, there are countless nearby opportunities to offroad at varying degrees of technical difficulty, making this area a 4WD paradise.
