Coyote and Squirrel Trails
Coyote Trail winds past limestone caves, through a lush riparian and forested area, then above for a bird’s-eye view of Rifle Falls. Kids of all ages will love exploring the caves. Bring a flashlight for the largest one. Squirrel Trail crosses East Rifle Creek and winds through Gambel oak forest to the base of a red sandstone cliff. The trail continues along the Grass Valley Canal that takes water to Harvey Gap Reservoir. Hiked together, the trails make a lopsided figure-8 through a naturally and historically interesting area along East Rifle Creek.
