Monday was a great day for a hike. Diane, Eileen, Carol, Lisa, Ben, Jerry and David ventured to Saguaro NP East to hike the Coyote Wash loop This loop will be the alternative hike to the Hope Tail.
We started at the Camino Loma Alta trail head and walked 0.7 miles to the turn for the Coyote Wash. The wash was rocky and then rockier for about a mile, then it changed to gravel and small rocks.
Our next turn was on to the Ruiz trail. This started our climb out of the wash. The climb was about a mile and was gradual. Once to the top we started down to the Hope trail and then back to the cars. 6.07 miles
