Los Coyotes used to be one of the “Premier” 4 Wheeling areas in Southern CA. It closed several years ago to 4 Wheeling. This will be the first 4WD Event at Los Coyotes in several years. May of the trails are overgrown with vegetation and heavily eroded. If you can, bring pruning loppers/saws to help clear the trails of vegetation. If you are worried about paint damage, stay on the main roads.
It is important that all the rules be strictly followed to convince the current Management that Organized 4WD Groups can be trusted to follow the rules. The campground is open to the Public however the area will not be open to the general public for 4 Wheeling. Special Permission from the Management will be required. Details for how to get Permission are being worked out and will be posted when they are set.
For the coming event:
We have not scouted or cleared all of the trails so do not know about some of their condition.
The trails to the east of El Hill REQUIRE both Front and Rear Lockers.
El Hill is ONE WAY (Up Only).
We have not scouted Bronco Hill but suspect Front and Rear Lockers are required.
Going up Dangerous Road Front and Rear Lockers are strongly recommended.
Appian Way toward the Old Mine is blocked in Cougar Canyon.
Toboggan is not passable except for highly modified vehicles. (Expect major damage if attempted.)
To get to Bagby’s Rock take the southern route. You will have to turn around and return the way you went. Toboggan is not passable.
We have not scouted the Ridge Road (Marshmallow Hill to Fire Mountain). The condition is unknown.
We expect a large number of vehicles, 30 to 50 so will not be leading a single run. We will hand out maps and hope that some people familiar with the area will lead small groups on various trails.
We have scouted some trails and done some pruning but much work still needs to be done on the trails to get them back to the condition they were before the area closed. We may be asking for volunteers for future weekend work parties to do more Trail Maintenance/Brush Clearing .
