Enjoyed spotting baby desert tortoise. Hiked in Mid May. It was still quite hot from 8:45-10:45 am. Wear a hat and tennis shoes, not sandals.
Trial begins as tramped red sand, moving to white sand with black basalt rocks. Descending into a sandy stream bed.
Love that we can take our dogs on this trail. We also don't usually run into many people which is nice. I don't love all the rocks for the first mile or so. But the view at the end is great (posted a picture). Make sure to leash your dog when you get close to the lookout. You have to guess since it is not marked that you are about there. But there isn't any sort of fence or anything so makes for a great view, but not so nice for a curious dog.
