Easy & Fun, Family Hike, Great Views The hike starts out at large dirt road. There is a couple of picnic spots with tables, grills and bathroom facilities. This is a great place for families to have an afternoon picnic and nice leisurely hike. Follow the dirt road, which will lead to the trail head. Follow the trail to the canyon base. You will see a stone wall with a mysterious opening. Follow the opening and it will drop you into a dry wash bed in the center of the canyon. Stay in the wash until you come to a cattle fence. This is your indication that you are at the end of the hike. Keep your eyes open as you may see rabbits, quail, various lizards and snakes. If you plan on taking an early morning or evening hike be cautious of Javelina.

Nice easy trail. About 50 ft. from the fence that goes across the wash, you can follow a trail up the hill on your right to loop back around to where you started. Or you can just turn around and go back but that makes it a very short hike. Up the hill is a little tougher but not bad. I lost the trail at the top of the hill and just bush-whacked down the other side. The vegetation is sparse so its not hard to do. Its a quick trail if you're just looking to get out for a bit. It was less than an hour for me and I was taking my time.

Well maintained restrooms, water fountains, and ramadas are at the trailhead. You can also access the Honeybee North Trail from here which is a little longer but more level. Do both trails and you'll kill a few hours.
