Picketwire canyon is remarkable and unique with the dinosaur tracks and ruins, indian rock art, and general desert environment with its panoramic views. Plan well, primitive camping at the trailhead, no water. Purgoitory river not the best source for water on the trail, though we used it. Extreme heat in mid to late summer, plan accordingly. We stopped at the dinsosaur tracks and went back. Plan on returning to go all the way to Rourk ranch.

The trail was a nice hike along an old stage line and through a native sage prairie. Great open sky, nice desert scenery. Recommend doing it with the other trails at Vogel canyon. It makes a nice full day hiking the area. Some of the other trails are more spectacular, but I wouldn't miss this one either.
