The highest of the Coyote Hills at 653812 hides its attractions from Hwy. 940: A long grass ridge with meadows sweeping down the western flank. The eastern approach described here is the shortest and most straightforward. You donâ€™t approach it via the Baril Creek trail, so thereâ€™s no creek crossing to worry about.
Start: Hwy. 940 (Forestry Trunk Road). Park just north of the Baril Creek bridge on the west side of the highway below a grassy bank.
Difficulty: Easy going on old road, trail and grassy slopes.
- Looking down the north ridge.
Please refer to the trail description in the guidebook, especially for unofficial, off-trail hikes.
