“A trail in the bottom of a wash meandering through the Sonoran Desert.”— Chris McD
From this point, the trail continues west for a short distance before turning to the south. The entire trail is characterized by soft sand, so be prepared. In addition, the wash/trail is narrow and depending on the season, might be overgrown in places. Along the way, you'll be treated to a variety of plant life growing along the wash. Animals also use this trail, and you are more likely to see animal tracks than people tracks.
The trail continues for a little over two miles before ending at a junction with Cactus Forest Trail.
