Boasting some of the warmest waters in the state and a mild winter climate, Quail Creek Reservoir lures boaters and anglers year-round. Spend a day on the water or visit a nearby state or national park, then retire to a campsite in a spectacular red rock desert setting.
We hiked about a mile out and a mile back. A good trail for beauty, relative seclusion for being close to the road, and a good workout with lots of ups and downs designed for mountain bikes. Wednesday afternoon saw one bike and no other hikers. Wildflowers were just coming in mid-March.
