“A short trail at the northern side of park just next to Persimmon Gap Visitor Center.”— Nathan Carroll
About 1/3rd in, some climbing is required to get to east side of the trail. This section involves some easy ladder-like climbing on rocks that are fairly natural distances for human movements. Once past the climb, one can go off trail just a little and get great views back into the basin to the south and good views of Rosillos Mountain range and Chisos to the south.
The eastern side of the wash gives more desert running with some good views in the expanse on the Stillwell side of the park.
