At the end of this trail are petroglyphs and small waterfalls in early spring. Note: do not park on the side of the road - you will get towed. Instead be sure to park in the parking lot area.

Easy hike for the beginner. I've seen older people and even little kids out there and it's a pretty busy trail. The hieroglyphs are a great reward to see at the end of the trail. I would say it's about a 1 hour hike round trip.
