Must have high clearance vehicle. 4WD helps. Hiking part is mostly easy. Scenery, vistas, red barrel cactus, Joshua Trees, colorful sandstone and petroglyphs are a wonder. Large variety of desert adapted plants (wildflowers) to see.

Great area, however it was hard to find some of the petroglyphs. No signage for roads or directions to petroglyphs. We did a lot of searching on-line to find areas. I recommend a GPS.
