We drove to the Desert Garden Trail which was a 3 star...interesting but flowers were not abundant this spring. If you go farther up the road a 4WD is needed. It’s very rough to Willow Creek and beyond. The upper area above the creek is...More

We are Jeep-people (true 4x4, not a maul-crawler), but we know that many of our family and friends are not. Coyote Canyon is a great trail for showing guests the beauty of the desert--they can drive their own cars rather than cram in the back...More

The spring flowers were as spectacular here as anywhere else in the area, but much smaller crowds. Dirt road was in good condition, no need for high clearance vehicle to get to nice blooms.

Drove up the canyon. Did not see a big bloom. A few lupine and budded Ocatillo. Easy for four wheel drive but not worth the effort until the Ocatillo are in bloom. Could be now or in few days. No carpets of lowers. Lots of...More

An easy two wheel drive back to desert gardens lead us to the back side of Coyote Mountain. Interesting geology. Love the desert and all it offers. Would be spectacular when wild flowers are blooming.
