This hike has a little bit of everything in the park. There are two Joshua trees guarding the trail at one point, which made for a fun photo. Bunnies and lizards crossed our path along the way. The rock cap was neat!

Nice and short trail. It is great when not a lot of people go on it.

Great trail for young and old alike. It is wheelchair accessible, so parents with very young children in strollers can enjoy this scenic, easy walk. It has sign posts, along the way, that point out various desert features the average visitor may not be aware of. It is an excellent trail to see the monzogranite rock formations, for which the park is famous.
