Outstanding trail quality and quick ascent to the top of Yavapai Point. The cloudless, sunny day made for beautiful colors of the desert and the deep blue of the lake. I would recommend this trail to everyone as the combination of surrounding mountains, beautiful desert, and blue lake made for a very nice day. Lots of great photos taken today.
The hike was ok. The view of the lake was limited with the low water level. the beached, floating bridge looked like an eye sore since the water level was so low. I dont recommend this hike unless the water leve is high. If the water level is low, take a break in the wash and look for the millions of spiders crawling in the rocks near the water.
Disappointing - unable to get there with an ordinary car. After exiting at table Mesa Rd and crossing to the west, you turn right immediately up to a gate that states "trust land permit required" the gate is easily opened but the rugged track beyond is impassible without 4WD. maybe one day I can get to the trail, it sounds lovely.
