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.

Very cute place to watch the sunset with your SO on top of the rocks. The trail was pretty but I wouldn't go on it again.

The trail is an easy hike with a well marked trail. Takes you by a lot of the wildflowers that are blooming now. I'm not sure there was anything to cause me to want to do it again. You can park at skull rock and walk a short distance to see the same things and simply walk back the couple hundred feet.
