Start at the Hunting Hollow Parking lot and ride up the paved road for about 2 miles. The gate to the park entrance will be on your right. After crossing the entrance, stay on the Coit Road to the left for about 1 more mile. Watch for a trail on your right. It is not marked immediately by the road but after about 20 yards on the trail, there is a trail marker for the Anza Trail.

Continue going up the switchbacks for about 0.7 mi. There is a trail marker pointing to the Cullen Trail on the right. Do not take this trail but stay to the left on the Anza Trail.

After about .3 miles the trail splits. Go to the right on the Jackson Trail and continue up hill on more switchbacks. You'll be climbing through switchbacks and steep spots for about another 1.5 miles before you come to an opening with a clearing and a great view all around. Here You can get on the fire road, which is Jackson Road, or you can take the Elderberry Spring Trail to the left, which is a fun singletrack segment. It joins Jackson Road later.

Continue on the fire road for about 1.5 miles and it comes to a junction with another fire road. Turn right onto Washno Road and continue on the fire road along the summit for about 0.6 miles until the Dexter Trail takes off on the right. You're in the right place when you see a sign that says it goes to the Coyote Creek Entrance.

The Dexter Trail goes up for just a short ways and then the fun downhill begins. Take the trail down for 0.7 miles until you see a junction in the trail and go to the right on Grizzly Gluch Trail towards the Coyote Creek Entrance.

The next section is some of the best singletrack on the ride, mostly downhill. After crossing the creek bed there is a little climb, but soon you are back at the park entrance.
