Coyote canyon

Di Giorgio RD, turns into a dirt road that heads further into Coyote canyon.
Up to first crossing the road may be accessible for most cars.
First crossing may be a small creek or dry.
Second crossing is mostly wet, but not very deep and should be easy to cross in an 4x4.
Just before Third crossing the road is seasonally closed (Summer).

At this point you find a small parking. A bit rougher road leads a little bit further to third crossing.
Depending on the weather this may be a swamp, difficult to cross, or almost dry and very easy cross.
Just past the Third crossing the road is called the by-pass road or boulder alley.
As the latter name suggest a rather steep bouldery road, only accessible for those with enough ground clearance and traction.
Just beyond the by-pass road, the road is rather easy to drive again and heads to popular destinations, like Sheep Canyon and Middle Willows.
