This trail has an entry for Cottonwood North and South. We picked South as someone who went the day before (Dec. 30, 2017) told us South had water, and North was Dry. We entered at South and walked North until the Boulder Choke. Possibly we could have traversed it, but did not. Most of the rest of the trail was packed or slightly soft sand, sometimes with rocks and boulders. There were a few other tricky spots to get up and down, but nothing too bad. There is also a side canyon at one point. We went to the mouth of that but did not go in as the sand seemed to be pretty deep there. When we got back to the trail entry point, we exited a bit farther down than where we entered. One of the entries is a 4-5 foot drop, another is a slightly steep hill (we entered on this) and the other is through a wash with a slightly steep trail up to the road. Over all we liked this trail, and hope to go again.
