Nice little trail to do at sunset with kids with a little education along the way.

Arrived closer to sunset and found a rattlesnake! The hike may not have been worth it, but the rattlesnake made our day. Also saw some lizards, a rabbit, and an antelope squirrel!

Small little loop showing off the various plant life commonly seen throughout the park. As far as hikes go there is nothing to do here due to the side but if you are interested in local flora I would recommend the trail which has a lot of really great informational plaques throughout the loop.

A very easy paved, nearly level trail off of Kinney Road just north of the visitors center. Lots of informative panels to give you a sense of life in the desert.
