Hard to find Trail head but once you do it's a decent hike.
Challenging for a beginner for sure. Very rocky so it's easy to lose your footing. To circle back to the parking lot, take the sunrise trail to the coach whip trail.
Poorly marked trails
Narrow and lots of lose small rocks but scenery is good
