This trail offers all visitors, especially those unable to travel on natural surface trails, an opportunity to experience the beauty of the Kawuneeche Valley and its abundant wildlife.

Moose, elk, deer, a plethora of bird species and wildflowers can all be seen from Coyote Valley Trail.

Beautiful views of the mountain ranges and river. Very dry this time of year but fish were hungry for grasshoppers.
