Easy Hiking in dry wash bed; great family fun This easy hike is perfect for a family outing, or early evening nature walk. From the parking lot head under the Ranco Vistoso Blvd. bridge, which will drop you down into a dry wash bed. For the rest of the hike follow the weaving dry wash bed until it dead ends at a 7' cement wall. Enjoy the great views: interesting rock formations, tall cactus and occasional glimpse of the Pusch Ridge Mountains. Trail runners will enjoy this pleasent hike, since the ground is nice and soft. This trail reaches the petroglyphs.

Nice short trail except the majority of it is in a river bottom, very sandy. It’s about 2 1/2 miles one way and then the same coming back. Best thing about this trail is near the end there are petroglyphs which was pretty cool.

I liked this trail! I didn't find it hard to navigate, pretty straight forward through the wash actually. Scenery is okay, didn't see much in the way of wildlife, but did enjoy the cool petroglyphs!!! Follow my instagram for more adventures @julie_journeys

It’s a very easy walk through the marsh of the canyon. Rocks are great view but the rest is walking through sand. V. Buggy.

veOnce get to the rock structure, can go in a tunnel and out the other side. leads to a wash, not a long hike more like a walk in my opinion. (not Rocky or much of a trail) but neat to view if your in the area. was told there are petroglyphs on some rock faces. Easy to walk, no elevation. No loose gravel or rock under foot, mostly sand. Not much shade in wash area.

Nice trail— good for all skill levels. Some pretty views. It’s not a hike I’d drive a long way to do but it’s nice and quick if you’re looking for something lighter.

Decently trafficked easy hike, saw many with their dogs. Most of the trail runs along the wash so if it’s rained expect water/mud. Great hike if you’re looking for something easy, quick with nice desert scenery

Great view - not too difficult but there were rocky areas and sandy paths. Our first hike in the area - walked 2 miles. Looks like there were several ways to hike. Looking forward to going back.

A nice short hike to kick off the new year. The trail is mostly flat through the sandy wash. The trek has a nice reward of finding petroglyphs near the end of the hike not that far past the broken dam.

I like this trail, not super thrilled about the broken drinking fountains.

Really loved this hike. Took the dogs and it was very relaxing. Only thing I didn’t like was it was hard to stay on the trail. At least most of the trails all lead together at some point. Overall very happy with this hike though.

Great early evening hike. left about 5:00pm on a Sunday, Nov 3. Took a bit over an hour round trip, walking fast. It was just starting to cool down. Its a soft sand walk up a wash. the petroglyphs are the end of the trail, just over a mile walk. You know you are almost there when you walk through the middle of a broken dam. Its about 100 paces further on the left. The trail petty much stops there. It was dark when I got back to the parking lot.

Great resistance walk since the canyon is sand. We saw rabbits and finches. Loved the wildflowers on the trail.

It's a chill hike, but you're walking through a wash bed with a sandy path so if you don't like walking through sand, it's not for you. Best if you go early morning or evening when the sun isn't high up. Unfortunately, not too many options for shade.

Enjoyable morning hike! Lots of wildlife, and cacti’s. Although there were muddy spots , and bugs that came along with that, it was still fun.

Got lost going down a farmer’s road and had to double back. Lots of unmarked trails so check that your on the trail frequently.

Nice hike, lots of flowers to enjoy, but along with the flowers comes the bees. Nothing too bad, but if anyone has bee allergies, be warned - take your EpiPen! Otherwise a very enjoyable, short, easy hike.
