More like a strenuous walk than a hike, but great destination. The palm trees are pretty outrageous, and you can nearly climb up to them (off-trail) to increase the difficulty. Dog-friendly. Nice way to spend an afternoon.
Nice trail to hike. At the end of the trail look up in the ridge of the mountain side and you will see the last of the palm trees native to Arizona. Dog friendly. Trail is usually empty. Bring water.
Easy off-road drive on a well maintained dirt road. Nice hike up in the canyon.
Nice drive, smooth dirt road with good parking lot. Good hike but not an easy one.
Rocky. Some parts hard to find. Bouldering!
The hike gets interesting AFTER the Palms sign. Quite a bit of bouldering and an pretty good view!
