Natala H. on Spur Cross Trail
Nice hike and so many flowers today!
This trail is not as steep as we were told. We are 65 and 70 and had no problems. It is a well maintained trail with beautiful views. The Hills were covered in flowers and so beautiful. If you decided not to do the full 6+ miles, you can opt for a shorter trail in the area with just as beautiful views.
This is one of those trails that really puts you out in the desert. After an initial steepish climb, you come to a resting area and you can see the sprawling desert for miles. Most days I've done this hike there are few hikers. What I like is that it never really looks the same..you'll find something unique about this trail each time you're on it.
Towards the end I'm always fatigued - pack a snack, pack extra water.
