Mostly just a scenic trail. A lot of soft sandy areas along the way. Towards the end when you're in the canyon there are some rocky spots to traverse, but nothing extreme. I did this in my 97 Jeep TJ with 31's and a 2" lift, and had 0 difficulties.

Interesting mine artifacts, desert plants and cacti! A lot of walking up the sandy wash but not much elevation gain so not bad. Two different mines to see and other rock structures. Seven to eight miles round trip depending where you park. Another two miles if you continue up to the overlook.
