Coyote Canyon is the primary path of Coyote Creek, a meandering 35-mile
monument to Anza-Borrego history
and Mountain Cahuilla civilization. It offers challenges to backpackers,
horseback riders, mountain bikers, and 4-wheel drive enthusiasts, and opportunities
for day-hikers to get away from well-travelled roads.
Coyote Canyon can be approached from Borrego
Springs in the south and Anza in
the north. The canyon is closed to vehicle traffic between Upper Willows
and Middle Willows. From June to October 1, the Coyote Canyon and Horse
Canyon trails are closed from the north. The Coyote Canyon trail is closed
at Third Crossing.
