good for the main purpose of getting my dog out of the house for a bit. and logging some miles for my 100 mile challenge. easy and quick. lots of birds if you're interested. not very crowded. a few cactus plants but road has recently been mowed.

Boring trail. Very little wildlife. Some birds, crab shells and not much else.

This trail is flat but very open. Lots of high grass and cactus to have to navigate around. We saw a lot more wildlife on the Blackpoint Drive in than we did on this trail. I would not consider this trail kid-friendly due to the heat and the cactus and high grasses. The parts closest to the parking area are fairly hard packed, but the back part of the loop did have high grasses; and multiple washouts. I"m sure the hurricanes this summer have effected the maintenance schedule which probably explains the high grasses that have to be navigated.
