Description

From the Senita Basin Trailhead, continue up the drainage. There are a few information signs describing the local area and history that are worth checking out. At 0.2 miles, take the junction to the left and proceed clockwise on the Senita Basin Trail. After leaving the Senita Basin Trail, drop in the dry wash and run a mile on dry sand/gravel and return to the Red Tanks Tinaja Trail.

This wash is quite a beautiful segment of trail with an excellent display of the desert. Notice a few scattered black plastic gallon bottles in the shape of old bleach bottles. There's a chance these water containers were discarded by illegal immigrants traveling from Mexico. Climb out of the wash as you return to the Red Tanks, then head back to the trailhead.
