Coyote Loop Trail starts off of Swamp Wells about a half mile from the base of Horse Butte and runs up to the Swamp Wells Horse Camp. The first half of the trail is open with few trees due to a past forest fire. After crossing China Hat Road the trail soon enters into the trees and you encounter a fairly gentle climb up to the horse camp. There is a split in the trail about 3 miles past China Hat Road which will take you through some very techy lava goodness (right) or along a fire road (left). After a couple hundred yards, the 2 routes merge again.

Perfectly rideable, soft in spots. BTW, this is very much a green trail.

 Doesn't look like a loop to me...
