Interesting area for those Interested in the Oregon Trail, like myself. Easy trail, nothing challenging, except dodging the piles of dog crap in and along the trail. I think it must be a popular place to take your dog. Gross.

There's nothing really bad about this trail beyond its brevity. Honestly, it should be reclassified as child easy since there are virtually no inclines/declines and the terrain in gentle. The bird population is somewhat interesting and near the cliff you can see a decent amount of activity. There are allegedly hawks but I didn't see any my day here. Another big plus to this trail is there were no Mormon crickets which is almost unheard of on desert trails in the valley. Overall it was fun for me and a good trail for someone not seeking any real challenge.
