Meandering perimeter Bartlett Lake trail. Spring (March) wildflowers extraordinaire! Be sure to go N (left) upon parking at Rattlesnake Cove picnic/beach area for true full Palo Verde trail (512?) hike: 4+mile out (8+ RT if you go to the end). Another hiking website directions say to go Right (S) from parking lot but that's Trail 511 leading towards marina (1 mile). Sparsely trafficked & spectacular!

The trail was very overgrown. It wasn't close to the river, and the trail wasn't clearly marked for the first half. We didn't see any wild horses. That being said, the trees were very pretty.

It wasn't very close to the river at all, and you couldn't see it for most of the trail.

Really steep in places but I loved the trail! I would do it again. Just make sure that one of the group members knows how to backpack and you should be fine!

Too over grown, there is a bee hive somewhere close because there was bees everywhere. Very flat if you like that

Very easy trail. Not a lot of foot traffic.

Reviews mentioned a lot of trash so we brought bags, were pleasantly surprised with the lack- we only managed to find a bit. Easy stroll, not completely accessible, but the trail itself is do-able if you have big wheels and strong muscles.
