Coyote Mountain East Approach-Strenuous Hike

Coyote Mountain, East Approach
January 5, 2019
9am – 4pm
Sicco Rood & Ashley Kvitek
Join Sicco and Ashley for a strenuous 5-mile hike to the summit of one of Borrego Valley’s most prominent landforms: Coyote Mountain. We will be headed up the east side of the mountain with a very steep but stable-footed climb to the first ridge. From there, the footing will be less stable but the elevation gains become less extreme. We will return the same way. It’s a tough one, but the views from the top will be breathtaking!
We will gain about 2,600 feet of elevation on the way up, and lose equally as much on the trek back down. The hike is 5 miles round trip.
You must register in advance for this program. Participants must be in good physical condition and able to travel off-trail in the desert over rough, uneven, and steep terrain. Each participant must be well-prepared with water, snacks, appropriate clothing and footwear, etc. Leaders have the right to turn away any participant that comes unprepared for the adventure.
