Description

Take a stroll along the Coyote Valley Trail for a chance to view big game (elk, deer, moose) and guaranteed vistas of the beautiful Kawuneeche Valley. If you're in the vicinity of Grand Lake, this gem really sparkles in the early morning or late afternoon/evening when wildlife is active and other visitors are less likely to be encountered.

Short Walk: Park at the Coyote Valley Trail and wander down the obvious paved path.

Family Friendly: Paved, accessible trail featuring a high likelihood of megafauna encounters!
