A nice moderate trail through great desert scenery crossing creeks and twisting and turning around the hills. Provides a loop opportunity between Hawk's Nest Trail, Valle Verde Trail, and Dixie Mountain Loop.

Super fantastic trail! It was a little busy but not so much that you couldn't enjoy being in nature. There are now restrooms and water fountains at the trailhead!
