Took the trail as our first stroll in the Park. Very enjoyable as the trail is easy to follow and is not arduous. Could imagine how the rumored smugglers might have gone about their business.

Beautiful desert area with amazing rock formations. Fun to watch rock climbers throughout the park. Interesting and fun historical facts about the park during old western days.

You will find lots of exposed rock, some minimal scrambling, and overall a nice walk. Not much Wildlife on the walk.

What a gorgeous place for a hike through the desert. This was a pretty easy one mile loop through a valley surrounded by rocks. There were tons of rock climbers everywhere. There is a nice picnic area with parking and restrooms. Very family friendly area

Great short trail through an area of JTNP that was very unique. Fun trail for families as there are plenty of rocks for kids to play on as well. Lovely picnic areas too.
