The willows

The willows are a good place to get out of the heat and give the kids a place to play in the water....Keeps them busy...

Coyote Canyon is not for everyone.........Thank Goodness! The road is dusty and gets very rocky past the Third Crossing, but if you love real desert exploring, it doesn't get any better. Prior to arriving at Third Crossing, (where, if you don't have a high clearance 4x4 and lots of experience...........you better plan on hiking the road!) there are three marked... More

We rented a Jeep. This was a fun trek. About 30 minutes in the road gets fun. You need 4x4. Many opportunities for pictures and flowering plants. Get out of the car and explore a bit for the best experience.

The vibrant colors only found in the desert and in the spring are in abundance here. A fairly rugged vehicle is necessary for most of the trip, and 4wheel drive for the final few miles. Don't miss the beautiful sculptures near the entrance.

You will need 4 wheel drive and high clearance once you get by 3rd crossing .An alternative is to drive in and hike . You are rewarded with great views , flowing water and lots of canyons to explore.

Coyote Canyon is easy to find and has been very accessible in a small SUV without 4 wheel drive. We drove it on 11/20/14. Unlike other years when we could get past the ford or at least as far as Desert Gardens, we got stuck about 3 miles in. Because of summer rains, the road is not in good condition.... More

We did some primitive camping here for 10 days in the Desert Garden area, about 2-1/2 miles off the end of Digiorgio Road. Daytime temps for the area in late December were very comfortable in the low 70's. Plenty of sunshine. However, they dipped to the high 30's and very low 40's at night and the wind picked up considerably.... More

We were able to easily drive about five miles up the canyon to the bypass road and could probably have gone further but didn't want to challenge our older all-wheel-drive car. Magnificent views. Nice places along the way to pull over and picnic.

We will be back to explore more. mostly 4x4 and motorcycles but heaven in a pre-runner... You can download google earth .kmz and print area maps and/or convert to .usr and add to your Lowrance GPS.
