Need to Know
Dogs must be on leash December 1st to June 30th.
This is a mixed use trail that is very popular with mountain bikers for descending. Be sure to share the trail.
This area lacks official maps, only has a few signs, and is covered in informal trails and private property. It's open so it's hard to get properly lost, but be careful and take Hiking Project with you.
This trail begins from the Old Ranch Road Trail #4426
(aka Jeep Trail) a short distance up from Old Highway 8
. Initially you'll ascend along a small cliff/slope before the trail turns west and begins to follow the far more impressive cliff of Coyote Wall. This trail is very windy with many turns banked for mountain bikers, who typically use this as a descent trail. You can expect to have outstanding views of the gorge and Hood, zero shade, and lots of company on this very popular trail. Be mindful of the cliff!
Flora & Fauna
Be mindful of rattlesnakes and ticks. Horned lark are ground nesting birds common to the area. Tons of wildflowers during spring.
