This is an easy trail that most cars should be able to handle. It drops you off in a forest of giant dagger yuccas. The sheer number of daggers was impressive, especially when you are looking up at them from the valley floor.

An easy drive thru the desert. Near the end you are in a maze of giant dagger plants. The road is graded, and usually in good shape for a passenger car.
