Additional Info on Coyote Canyon Trail in ABDSP

One of my readers requested some additional information on the location of the Coyote Canyon Trail I had written about a few weeks ago. Shame on me for not including it in my original post!

Coyote Canyon is located in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park 7.6 miles north of Borrego Springs. From Christmas Circle* (I love that name!) you want to head north on Borrego Springs Road. After a bit more than 3 miles you will bear right to join Henderson Canyon Road. At 4.5 miles, at the T intersection, you will turn left on DiGiorgio Road and take it all the way to the end. When you see this sign:

...the trailhead is directly in front of you. If you have a copy of Massey and Wilson's Backcountry Adventures - Southern California (and if you live in SoCal and own a jeep, you will love this book), the South Coyote Canyon trail is Trail #25 in the South Coast section.

*According to wikimapia, Christmas Circle was named in honor of the birth of Salvador Ignacio Linares in Coyote Canyon on Christmas Eve in 1775. It is a large traffic roundabout with a park in the center.

That's it for now!
