dogs on leash
You need to bring money with you to park($2 if you're hiking/day use)
Other than that this place is awesome. Definitely gets the blood going.
Dog friendly which is awesome! Lots of loose rocks so might be a good idea to bring dog shoes with you if your doggie isn't used to it.
Amazing views! If you're going at sunset be sure to bring a head lamp / flashlight because once that sun is gone it gets REALLY dark.
Took my pup to this with family and friends, including a 2 year old and a 4 year old and my sis who has a 4 week old. Took us 45 mins with very slow walking and kissing booboos and dogs pooping and so forth. I'd do it again with them. I'd only do it myself if I continued to the pass.
ABOUT THE TRAIL
This is a flat, sandy-ish trail that is well maintained and marked. There are parts of the trail near the middle to end that have slight elevation changes - walk uphill a bit, then down - but for the most part, this hike is pretty smooth and easy going. It's a good length for what it is. Plenty of desert scenery with city views at certain points, and the quiet desert/mountains at other parts. Great to get away from all the city noise.
ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE
You'll park in the parking lot at the beginning of the trailhead. $6 for a vehicle to park; they do take debit cards. We encountered several people but it wasn't crowded. This tail is open to horses, dogs, mountain bikes, and hikers. Chipmunks were a fun distraction.
