Very easy nature trail (wide cement walkway) that recounts the history of the area and sadly notes that the water currently supporting the remaining palms in the oasis has to be provided by the Park Service because the spring that once provided water naturally has dried up due to human activity. Follow the story of two doomed lovers as you walk around the loop.
Easy walk to enjoy with pets, small children or even to get the blood flowing after a long drive!
Great for family with kids.
Simple walk on very easy trail. If you don't see wildlife then you must be in a noisy group because there's always something to see along this walk. Make sure you keep all your senses open because you'll usually hear many varieties of birds too.
Lots of wildlife on this easy nature walk. Quail, lizards, rabbits, & squirrel - make sure to go early or late to see the most wildlife.
