The wife and I enjoyed an early May hike in Last Chance. Seventy degrees and light breeze. Easy trail for old fokes. We did not make it to the springs but at our turn around point we looked back and up to see the elephant. (see pictures)

Moderately easy, very scenic and there is clear running water running through this desert oasis! Great as an overnight backpack for a family with young children. Avoid the summer months.
