No signage to locate the trail head. Guess we were on it. with a large parking area and the trsil was a wash. First part the most interesting with trail between two walls through
a Canyon.

To reach the trailhead travel west on Ina Rd to Wade Rd. 1.6 miles down Wade Rd will be a parking spot and the trailhead. After 3/4 of a mile on the trail the wash forks, stay to the right here.
Ringtail trailer is marked in the middle of the wash about 2 miles in. This makes a nice loop back to the parking spot

Gorgeous right from the trailhead! Petrogylphs aplenty! Make sure to take a right turn at the first major fork as you come out of the rock canyon or you'll end up a pretty boring road. I looped around, crossing the highway and taking Ringtail Trail back to the parking lot.
