Easy hike on sand and rocks. Great for all ages and skill level.

great hike

Fun, short trail. A good amount of scrambling so although it says dog friendly, it's not really.

Lots of big,slick rocks

It's a nice hike with a really good view, however it's not as dog friendly as I would've liked.

Take note that under categories this trail has "rock climbing." It was more rock climbing than I personally like, but it's got some great views. My hiking poles were not useful with so much climbing.

I brought my family to hike this trail today. The road leading up to where I think the trail is located is very primitive, and there is no signage indicating where the trail begins. The area is beautiful but I do not think it is ready for public use due to the lack of signage and any visible trail maintenance.

I note that a BLM official has contributed to the posts on this trail and I would suggest to him or her that signage be installed so that trails can be identified and that the trails themselves be marked and maintained somewhat so that way they can be followed and hikers do not get lost.

This is an incredible canyon system. I've been several times and I never recognize the trail but I follow the arroyos and make my own path. The canyons are steep and beautiful, the landscape is varied, and there are even a few caves. I highly recommend this area.

This is A great trail for a hike with the kids and dogs. Hiking (walking) through a lot of silt but otherwise very easy to do. We did this hike in January and the temperature was perfect. Probably would be difficult in Midsummer. Interesting rock features to view.

This trails good for a short hike in the foothills. Some small amount of scrambling is needed.
