This is a nice hike and relatively easy. Try to keep an eye out for the cairns as there are many smaller trails that spring off of the main one. Most of the recordings if not all show only one way in and out. This trail actually goes all away around Muggins Peak. Stay close the base and wash as it's easy to get off the main path.

We do this as a loop. Once past trailhead you drop into the desert and won't see signs of civilization the duration. Our loop we have a fairly good elevation gain. A cautionary note this area can become very confusing lots of canyons and valley's and peaks. I would run a gps with backtracking capability if you are not very sure of your ability.

Easy to Moderate hike for sure, the beginning is fairly easy and there are a couple more difficult parts in the hike. 1 good stretch of incline about halfway through. Definitely would be more challenging in the heat of the summer. It's a nice short (2-3hr) hike in these winter months. Very limited shade. Watch the cairns as it is easy to lose trail.

This is a fun trail but is hard to follow and hard to find. People have erected small caerns but mostly it is by memory and guessing. Lots of variations. We usually start by the wash and take a right on the small trail after the steep downhill on the gravel road. Then we follow that until we are around the "mountain". We usually hike this as a loop. Beautiful scenery and usually not many people at all. Be careful and bring a car with 4-wheel drive.
