Hiked up the southeastern ridgeline starting near Clark Dry Lake. Wonderful day.
We took the east ridge approach. I got overheated near the summit and I was very tired.
Took the long route to the summit from Pegleg Monument via Mist BM. Was an enjoyable 10.5 mile RT traverse of Coyote Mtn. Heck, I even saw a coyote!
Nice hike with great views to the valley below. I saw a group of five bighorn sheep and two of them rammed their horns together a few times which made a surprisingly loud sound. Highlight of the day. Hiked Wilson BM and Pinyon Ridge afterwards.
Part of an enjoyable 4 days tagging SDC peaks in the area. Trip Report
I also hiked the East approach from Clark Dry Lake. The passing winter storm dumped rain on the neighboring mountains but I felt only a few sprinkles on the relatively lower Coyote summit.
OT: stumbled upon a geocache near 33 19'57.57"N 116 18'16.08"W on the way down.
I hiked this one with Boy Scouts like five years ago. Cool peak in an amazing area
2600 feet in just over 2 miles makes for a fun and direct hike. Just under 3hrs RT.
