Somewhere between heaven and the Flintstones. Great views and rocks to scramble up. Lost the trail a couple times.

Had a very late start of the day and arrived trailhead around 2:00. Too many people so try to get there sooner but beautiful views.

The first ~1 mile is on road and through campground. Everything else is really nice. Saw lots of lizards, rabbits, and a mom and baby coyote.

Fun hike with a beautiful body of water that reflects the cool rock formations! Just don’t try to get in the water..:it didn’t look tempting!

Very short and easy. There was no water when I went today, but it's beautiful and there are petroglyphs.

All around easy trail with interesting things to look at along the way. Really great place to relax and clear your head. Take your time and take in the sights.

First to Review

Also known as the Big Horn Dam, this is a beautiful easy trail... you have a good chance to see and photograph Desert Big Horn Sheep. It's a short hike and easy to squeeze in another hike on the same day. There was water in the damn when I we were there with a lot of birds and other wild life... spring offers spectacular desert flowers!
