From San Diego take I8 east to S2 north to Hwy 78 east. At Ocotillo Wells take Split Mountain road to the entrance to Fish Creek wash. Follow the wash to the trail head.

I thought it was a really good up then get to see the wind caves and back down you go. Awesomeness. Would not recommend any car try to get out to this location. A lot of lose sand, we took our 4x4 truck out to this.

Super short hike with incredible views and awesome features. This is definitely worth checking out. Although you should probably have a vehicle with a good amount of clearance because the road is a little gnarly. Smaller cars not recommended.

The dirty road to the trail head was quite bumpy, and we passed the trail was alittle hard to find! over all the trail was great, just watch you step there is lots of the loose rocks and gravel but it was well worth the drive out! the views are wonderful!:)

Nice short trail that anyone from 12-55 can navigate. Very scenic, especially when you get to the wind caves.

The hike wasn't scenic and when you finally get there the caves are a little underwhelming.
