    Is Coyote Springs the area that is North of Vegas on 93? What's the scoop, are there trails, or are any plans to build trails?

    That MBAction article is not really accurate in stating that Dean was the sole "designer" of the Gooseberry Mesa Trails. Most credit should go to twin sixty something year olds, Mike and Morgan Harris(as in Secret Harris Trail). This is Morgan Harris(red jersey) when we ran into him at Gooseberry. At the time of this picture, we were discussing Little Creek and the BLM, Brent and....Dean. Morgan was consulted on the Coyote Springs Trails and I believe he has been there and worked on it too.





    I haven't been to Coyote Springs but the other guy in the photo, Bruce(long sleeve jersey) has along with guys like Jeff of AMC and Scott J. "Cottonwood-style trails..."

    Cool link with some good info. Waiting until after Interbike is probably a good idea. I would love to take a drive up there and check out the trail in the meantime. Good to see that Brents Legacy lives on, very cool indeed.

    Cool. Good info. My in-laws live in Logandale and we go across that old 93 cut-off to Glendale fairly often. I may just have to stop and do some scouting around when I'm down for I-bike.

    Thanks for the link Rob.

    This is what I know from talking to somebody who has ridden there.

    It's on private land. The developer wanted MTB trails next to it's world-class golf course.

    There was an "inaugural ride" a couple of months ago.

    It's not done yet. More work to be done when it gets cooler.

    A combination of Cottonwood, Bootleg and Cowboy Trails. A technical "staircase" climb. Not that much mileage yet.

    If you pull up the area on Google Maps or Google Earth there are a few photos of the trail.

    I'm going to go up there again soon to continue shooting / documenting the trail.

    I ran in to the builder of the bears best trail one day while riding on his trail and asked him if he knew anything about coyote springs. He said that it was sick but that it was behind a locked gate. I've always been interested in the area. Please post details

    I-15 North from Las Vegas. 25 Miles.

    North on 93 (Great Basin Highway). 30 Miles.

    East on Highway 168. About 1.5 miles.

    Google maps has it pretty close.

    P.S. Trail is closed to the public. I have no idea how to legally ride the trail.

    I won't be any good at describing it as I am quite the noob, but I guess I could say single-track, 6-mile loop, in sparse desert (beautiful in Spring).

    Photos soon (after I have 10 posts).

    I agree with the much of the above.

    6 miles when I left it in '09.

    More miles were added after I left. Don't know how many it's up to now (but I sure hope to find out soon).

    YES, it is on "private" land behind a locked gate!
    as of right now, I still don't believe it is open to the public.
    There is way more than six miles.... More like 36 depending on the loop you do.
    Brent and his crew, the Harris bros and so. utah crew, and a crew of mexicans have all contributed to the building of this trail at some point. However the vision and layout comes mainly from one guy.
    Yes, It is a mixture of cottonwood, bbt, bootleg ...and is very fun!!!





    I dig dirt!

    Membership has its Benefits

    Like everything, You just have to talk to the right people
    LasVegasMTB facebook page have more pics from Coyote Springs.

    ImaFred is right if you look at the map on the second pic you could ride all of the trails and put lots of miles.
    The trail is a fun and close alternative close to town and you can be sure that there will be no one else on it.
    BTW now that the temperatures are going down again we will be riding there often and who knows we might even have some spots left if you want to join us.
    So go ahead and bid on a spot
    Some of you (The ones that have contribute to our trail systems with your own sweat) don't need an invitation are always welcome and you can even get a pass so you can go by yourself but you probably know that already.

    So.... Am I reading this right? When you go, you have permission from the land owner or something to ride? And there is some kind of pass that others can get so as not to tick off the security folks?

    I'll be down in Logandale off and on over the winter and would like to ride out there.

    Yes when I ride there I get permission from the owner and calling in advance I could add you and your party as guests.
    Or your friends and mine can all go ride together.
