Done this several times though usually do car or bike shuttle. With shuttle the length is 4.5 mi. December and especially January look for bighorn sheep. I’ve seen them 3 times (out of 9 hikes) at the 2 mi. mark hiking from the south. Have also seen white tailed antelope ground squirrels, a Palm Springs pocket mouse, and lots of birds and reptiles.
