Beginning and turn around a little confusing. Deceptive gradual elevation going out. A good view of Wind Cave along the way.

Boring trail, I walked it today and it basically follows a fence line bordering the National Forest. It is way longer than 6.9 miles out and back.

Extremely green which was nice but not a whole lot going on with this trail kind of boring. I did figure out how to get to the wave cave so it wasn't all for nothing. Very easy great for dogs and kids.

You want a beautiful and quiet hike through the gorgeous Arizona desert, this hike is for you! This trail shows you wildlife, wildflowers, and stunning mountains without all the hard climbing. The only thing even remotely considered difficult would be the length, especially if you make it a round trip. Over 12 miles that way. It's not really heavily trafficked, I ran into maybe two other people the whole time. Lots of solitude here. It must be really pretty after a rain shower and in the spring with tons of wildflowers!
