we looked for an easy hike for my son and this fit the bill. however, the trail was very poorly marked and seemed to go to nowhere. too many people letting their dogs off leash, which i am not a fan of for multiple reasons. this was the disney version of a joshua tree hike. hard pass.

Fun little hike. I wouldn't recommend only doing the trail. Step off jump around and rock hop a little bit. It's such a great area to play freely and enjoy the massive beauty around you.

Very nice and well marked trail. Many places to climb and take in the desert views which are just incredible.

This trail is easy, and after walking out to skull rock, I climbed around and explored all of the rocks behind it and around it for a few hours.

We saw a desert mouse and a family of quails on this trail! Lots of places to climb and veer off the path.
