C A. on Rinconada Canyon Trail
Very nice west side trail. Hiked it around 8:30 am on a Saturday with our dog, and there were only a few other hikers (most with dogs) and trail runners. There aren't as many petroglyphs as other nearby hikes, but that didn't really matter to us. The trail itself is mostly flat and easy to navigate. Quick, enjoyable hike.
Mid December trip with a little snow on ground at top of mountain. Gorgeous drive up the mountain. We didn't have the extra hour to walk the path down into cave so we took elevator down. Breathtaking above and below throughout the cave. Historical markers tell you about early explorers! I cant imagine being in there with only a torch or lantern! I highly recommend this amazing cavern.
great trail for a good 5 mile hike, up and down through the dunes. just make sure to bring lots of water it's very dry. All in all if your looking for a desert hike then this is the one for you not only in a desert but also walking through where the first atomic bomb was dropped.
Really fun! We did it in mid February and the weather was perfect (55 and sunny). Our dog loved it too! We're in pretty good hiking shape and it took us a little under two hours to complete (clockwise) with three doggy water breaks. Some of the markers were blown down, so we had to leap frog a few times to find the markers, but could do so safely. We didn't find it to be terribly hard, but you do have to climb up and down a few dozen dunes.
