Kinda boring, lots of places for snakes to hide I was paranoid the whole time but I guess it's worth hiking atleast once!

A decent, dog friendly hike. Note that it is 2 miles out and 2 miles back -- so 4 miles round trip.

An easy, fun Jaunt past the Yellow Knolls. Makes it more fun to scramble up to the summits of the knolls themselves. Another option is to add the Black Gulch trail and return that way.

Went okay. Good scenic areas. Just a nice walk in the park. I like more extreme trails.

Doesn't look like much from the trailhead but gets interesting and cool about a mile in. Not a hard trail, but does get sandy in a few spots. We turned around at a place we called the 'Lizards Belly' because of the way the rocks looked, so I'm not sure about the trail beyond that. Would definitely do it again.

yes sandstone is cool, but power line interrupt the long distance views. so many stunning trails near by have more interesting sights. see chuckwalla.

So many things to look at and do. One of the coolest hikes I've ever been on and it's not that far out of the way. I left an ounce of gold in a black box and put it in a crevasse 14 paces east of the overhang. You'll know the over hang when you see it, cause I made a campfire there and you can see it still

It looks like a walk into the desert until you round the mountain. Then there are a variety of fun things to explore ranging from lava rock to beautiful sand stone formations. Really enjoyed this hike. It is not shady so the fall is a great time to hike here.

Really enjoyed this hike with my wife. Friendly hikers all around with lots of repellers taking advantage of the great weather. Loved the little side trails and caves that caused me to rate this hike a five star event.

I love this place. So much to see and explore. I really liked seeing all the agave plants. I enjoyed this hike with my dogs. Been several times and always find something new to see. The formations are very unique.
