Good trail. Lots of animals: turkeys, wild pigs, dears and cattle. We extended the hike by going down to the valley. This adds 2 miles. The view of the lake has nothing special. The lake was quite low.

I really enjoyed this trail. Also ran Mummy Mountain Trail. Very awesome, however Lake was desolate?

We camped at Coyote Lake and had a great time! The tent and RV sites are not too overly crowded. Restrooms and showers are nice as well.

There are plenty of activities to do: Hiking, boating and fishing. The lake was low when we went which limit the boat activities. Talked to a few people fishing and they mentioned they weren't catching any. We decided to do a lot of hiking! There are dozens of trails there. Be aware - most trails do not have a lot of trees - and it is in Gilroy - so it is HOT! Bring plenty of water. The trails were nicely maintained. There is also benches and tables along most routes.

Had a great time! Hope to come back when it is a little cooler.

Nice short hike with great views of the lake. You can make it 4 miles by starting on the Mendoza trail, taking a right onto the Mummy Mountain trail and then looping back to the parking lot via the coyote ridge trail.
