The trail at the end of the road has an impasse at about one tenth of a mile up the narrow wash. There is a way to bypass it on the steep hillside of crumbly granite, but it is a bit treacherous on descent. For casual hikers I would not recommend this trail. For the young and adventurous it would be fine.

easy hike we walked to from our campsite across the street in Yaqui Well. went around 8am. as we began the hike there were a couple bullet shells then we came across a coyote head sticking out of the dirt. I thought it was a German Shepard at first but my bf said it was a coyote. its a pretty canyon and leads to a rock canyon that I was semi difficult to climb into. I wanted to do more but it was time to turn around. my boyfriend saw a live coyote on the man with possibly pups. unfortunately we didn't see any cool lizards but we hiked pretty early. beautiful but basic hike. I like to be challenged a bit more. also I enjoy pretty rocks and found a few. have fun and enjoy.
