Stunning desert vistas with waterfalls. Super easy, great for kids. No signs are posted at trailhead, but the path is well worn, so it is easy to tell you are on the right path.

Very enjoyable hike. Temperatures were plenty warm during the day, but cooled off nicely in the evening. Quite a few fish in the lake, but they weren't biting much. Definitely worth the extra hike up the hill to the top of the falls. Probably best early or late season hike. Lots of people, but room for many many more.

Good 5 mile hike. Little warm. Near the lakes the trail passes very close to some camp sites. Interesting rock formations. Saw 3 waterfalls. And a snake.

great trail for taking newbies hiking or camping

This is a great hike, you can stay left and go to ancient lake or take the right trail and head to dusty lake. Lots of snakes, lots of horseback riders, but when summer comes it's too hot for most people. Overall, one of our favorite hikes. Although, would have never found the area without meeting someone who was willing to take us, there are no signs letting you know where to go.
