A quick, easy hike through the bird sanctuary makes for a great spot to stretch your legs and do some bird watching. There are some informational signboards along the way and you get a nice peek at the Salton Sea which is exactly what we were looking for. Not the most breathtaking views with the geothermic plants around.

Short, but very interesting view of the Salton Sea.

Easy hike with great educational signs throughout the trail sharing the history and information on the Salton Sea. I learned a lot!! The only downside are the geothermal factories lining the views.

This is a good easy hike for the kids. The views of the sea are really cool, and they are supplemented by the views of the geothermal power plants nearby. Try to plan your trip to be at the top of the hill at sunset, it's very rewarding.
