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.
