Trail Information

The Coyote Song Trail is a nice easy out and back hike close to Ken Caryl in southwest Denver. This a great easy trail to get your kids started out hiking. The uphill sections are steep enough to get the heart pumping, but still short enough to keep to kiddies happy. It’s an awesome place to enjoy Colorado’s great outdoors.

Starting at the parking area, go north onto the Coyote Song Trail. The Coyote Song Trail has many short ups and downs over the next 1.6 miles before you reach South Valley Road. Head back the way you can for a short 3.2 mile round trip hike. There are several loops that can be created if you are up for a longer hike. One option is turn right onto Lyons Back Trail and climb the section called “the stairs,” which takes you to a ridge summit about mile from the trailhead.

These trails are heavily used by mountain bikers so keep a close eye on the kids.
