This is a quick and easy hike. Like others have said there’s no real trail but if you just follow the trail on the map you can’t go off track. The trail begins along a little wash and following that gets you on the right path to start off on. The rocks are great, the sunset even better, and can’t beat watching the sky change colors over the desert.

I enjoyed this hike but there is no trail head and I couldn’t follow the directions as I think flash floods have obliterated the trails. We only saw 2 other people and they climbed to the top of the rocks. The rocks are cool if you are into geology, etc., like I am. If you want peace and nature this hike is for you!

Unfortunately this trail has been mostly washed out and has no trailhead marker. We went as far as we could follow and had to turn back. Gorgeous views of the hills and wildflowers

An easy walk along a sandy road for the first mile before descending into canyons. Right now, lots of wildflower blooms which makes the scenery much more interesting. Many ways to go so be sure to keep track of your location. The trail marker says Truck Haven trail. Views of the Badlands and of Salton Sea.

Great trail in March for few people and lots of wildflowers. Eastern part of the loop is not well defined but pretty much heading up main arroyos and heading towards big rocks (Truckhaven) that are your destination makes it very easy. Honeybee hive out of threat but cool at base of biggest rock in Spring 2019. Not sure whether they can oversummer.
