Did the loop again after not hiking this trail for months. Had three coyote sightings. Two may have been the same coyote as the first encounter was on the ridge and it was heading down slope cross country. I continued on the ridge until the intersection with the trail heading down and back to the trailhead. On my descent about 1/3 the way back I spot a coyote coming down the slope. It got on the trail and started taking it down slope looking back to check my progress. It finally got off the trail heading back up slope. They will stop and watch you. It's a bit creepy but I'm not particularly concerned as long as it's only one coyote.
