This is a bucket list hike. It is best done in the spring or fall. I have done both and I think I like the colors that a fall hike offers. It can get crowded on weekends. Great backpacking destination - you can go as...More

Spent 4 days backpacking with 3 friends in Coyote Gulch and it was amazing. The meandering creek was so peaceful and we found hiking barefoot was perfect. The cliffs, arches, waterfalls and plant life were so beautiful. Will certainly go back to show this hidden...More
