The Coyle Butte Loop trail departs from Corral Flat, a dispersed camping area off Forest Road 2630. It’s a fun 10-mile loop that follows part of the route of an annual endurance ride, running through lush meadows and open ponderosa pine forest. Wildflowers abound in early summer. The trail is a combination of forest roads and single-track trails and has little elevation change, so it’s an easy ride. However, the trail isn’t signed so it’s essential that you carry a map and compass or map and GPS and know how to use them.
You can also camp at Corral Flat, a dispersed camping area off Road 2630. It has flat campsites but no amenities, so you’ll need to bring your own stock water and portable corral or highline.
