Skull Rock was very cool to see in person. If you don't feel like doing the 1.7 mile hike you can park along side the rock on the main road and walk up.

The rocks are crazy big here but rough on your hands. Skull rock is cool to see, perhaps a little overhyped.

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.
