Horse Butte out and back

April 29, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

SEE UPDATE BELOW************

2nd UPDATE*******

MILES: 9.8
BIKING SKILLS: Very advanced beginner/low intermediate

Ready to roll at 11:30 am
Meet in Horse Butte parking area

Turn off the unpaved Horse butte road at the usual spot but do not park there. The other group will be parked there. Keep going about a half mile to the large parking area across from the trailhead sign
Look for the white Toyota van in that parking area across from the starting trailhead for Coyote.

Nice out and back that avoids negotiating the rock staircase on the loop trip.
There are some technical areas which can be walked and there are some random rocks on the trail. It is mostly a gradual climb up to the cave then a nice downhill on the way back.
Bring water, a snack and an extra layer if cool weather day

Update #2
We will return to original groups
There will be a full loop very mellow trip offered at 11 am
You will have to sign up for it and take your name off this trip if you would like to go on the full loop trip
