Description

The road to access the trailhead is gated and does not provide public access. The only way to enjoy this trail is to start at the Happy Valley saddle heading downhill.

It can be combined with the Manning Camp Trail as part of a longer run or loop. The trail allows you to enjoy the largest water body within the national park. Along the trail, you'll see mesquite, willow, and cottonwood trees along with plenty of birds and other desert creatures.
