Once a restricted area for military training maneuvers, this wild landscape is now open to the public. The trails are unmaintained, and the landscape is pristine. Parts of the trails are made up of old wagon roads. It is a wonderful place to spend the day, especially in mid spring, when the wildflowers are in bloom, and the rattlesnakes are still underground.

Everyone we saw got lost and had trouble getting out. A few more markers would be nice.

This loop trail has many lightly marked trails that intertwine. although it makes it a little tough to navigate, it is still beautiful and recommend the hike. bring lots of water and trees are slightly far apart. There is a lot of loose gravel and rocks do I highly recommend hiking poles or high ankle boots. Happy Hiking.

This time of year, the hills are beautiful and there is plenty of water running thru the rock beds. My only issue is that most of the trails are unmarked, so it's very easy to get lost and turned around. I suggest having a GPS and a compass.

The wildflowers are beautiful right now! The trail was a little rough for my 5 year old but he managed to make it! It's kind a hard to follow the trails and they seem to be everywhere. I will definitely go again.

Not a bad hike we did about 4 miles or so. Nice variation in incline and some beautiful meadows and streams.
