Originally, my day was to do the waterfall trail solely. However, after completing a very frustrating and crowded walk to see the waterfall I got back to my car and tried finding another short trail to do before heading home. (I wanted to make the most of the $6 pass) This trail was easy and essentially a walking trail, however the views were beautiful! You walk through a wash and get a great view of the mountains as you walk back towards the parking lot. I think this trail is more so used as a trail that accesses the longer 7 mile hike it drops you into, which I hope to do soon.
Easy trail. Was good to take our older dog.
