The entire trail is a loop about 13 miles long. I have hiked it as two smaller loops.

East Loop gps route
I follow the Blue markers to Bluegrass Tank. The Blue continued westward near the tank. But where was I? It was time to head towards the east and home. I suggest walking the loop clockwise.


This path follows portions of old logging roads through pinyon & juniper woodlands. In the summer it can be hot and dry.
The trail is a 5.4 mile loop with the elevation varying from 6,240’ to 6,450’.

West Loop
A sign along the road declares the there had been a forest fire here the summer of 2002. There was little evidence of any Ghost of the Coyote Trail. I found an off the road parking space near an old corral.

This path follows portions of old logging roads through pinyon & juniper woodlands. This region of the Apache-Sitgreaves Forest was badly burnt in 2002 and it had not recovered as of 2012. In the summer this region can be hot and dry. This is a 3.3 mile loop with the elevation varying from 6,300’ to 6,390’.
