The Chimneys trail is a moderate hike to a series of prominent volcanic dike formations. Indian rock art marks the base of these high pinnacles.

A rather long and monotonous hike through the desert, to reach some Indian petroglyphs and rock outcrops. The petroglyphs are at he base of the southern-most pinnacle, with an unmarked but distinct path leading to it.

Pretty boring hike but worth doing if you love petroglyphs

This is an excellent hike to make a trail run. We started at the trail head on Old Maverick Rd and ran to the Chimneys then on to the paved road at Ross Maxwell. Total out and back was almost 15 miles. It was fairly flat with some gentle inclines. If you're a fan of the desert this is a great run. Lots of good energy flowing...

Easy hike. I recommend as an overnight. The stars are second to none. There are some cool artifacts at the chimney rocks too.
