Coyote Ridge is a high mountain ridge at an elevation of 3.492m (11,456ft) above the sea level, located in Inyo County, in the U.S. state of California. It’s one of the highest roads of California.

Set high in Inyo National Forest, the road to the summit is totally unpaved and usually impassable in winters. 4x4 with high clearance required. Starting at the paved CA-168, the road to the summit is 25.2 km (15.65 miles) long. It is very steep, hitting a 20% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps.
