Bug guard is highly recommended gnats are right in your face. Wildflowers, mushrooms, wildlife, sand dunes to climb, and a few mini bridges to walk over made this hike pretty entertaining. Secluded when I visited which I rather enjoyed.

The trail is an easy to moderate hike for beginners with a few tall inclines which made it a little harder than expected. We took the long loop and the only complaint I have is the bugs. They were determined to be in my face; so even with lots of spray, I was fanning them away continuously with the trail map. I'd hate to see what they're like when there's actually been rain.
Did see some cacti and some other cool flowers I haven't seen before. There was even a cute little garter snake on the trail.

This is a great trail. It's full of wildflowers & prickly pear cactus in the summer. Lots of birds as well. It takes you through a bog & up a dune. Great views. If only you could cut out the sounds of the highway & trains!
Bring bug spray in the summer.
Lock your car & be aware of your surroundings.

This was an awesome trail! We're first time hikers and this is just what I was looking for, there were hills, and branches and sand dunes! I love it, we even seen a bunch of deer going through the field!
