Great workout hike for moderate hikers through an eerie desolate landscape. Trail can be a little difficult to follow at times but if you slow down and look for footprints you can pick it up again. The trailhead is right next to a firing range so the first mile can be a little noisy.

If you're looking for a good workout then do this trail; it's not the most beautiful trail in September, but has potential. I'm sure in the spring when in it's covered in flowers or at the start of winter with a little bit of snow on the ground would make this a more visually appealing hike. Lots of ups and downs making it a good, but not too strenuous of a hike - once we reached the base of the pinnacles we had to turn back because we didn't feel comfortable climbing and the trail disappeared - from the previous months rains or from the fire that seemed to have rolled through there not that long ago. As a pretty avid hiker... I would rate this as moderate

This is a great hike for early morning or evening. Don't go during the day throughout the summer-- lots of rattle snakes. There is a lot of rock climbing on this trial and keeps the hike interesting.
