Coyote Loop/Arnold Ice Cave Trails with out-and-back to Horse to Horse Connector ("Coyote Add on"). Bonnie's Intermeasy rules apply. Appropriate for MTB or Fatties. Will be cold! Note late (11:00) start to let it warm up a bit. We'll meet at the northern parking lot of Horse Butte - its about 1/2 mile north of the parking lot at the intersection. Depending on how many folks show, we may split the group between clockwise and counter-clockwise. We'll do the Coyote Loop to intersection with Arnold Ice Cave trail. The the out-and-back. (Usually that allows for the two groups to merge for group photo.) Trail conditions should be good after a couple of dry days and cold weather.
