Extensive cacti and unique boulders along this picturesque hike. Wear long pants and long sleeves and make sure you have good tread on the bottom of your boots! New this year: optional side trip to view an old ranch site.

    Beautiful scenery and great companions. Weather was about perfect.

    It is a "rough" trail - it has a lot of pea-gravel on the slopes and a fair amount of over-growth on the trail. However, we had a great group of hikers on the hike.

    Long pants and long sleeves are highly recommended for the BALLANTINE hike! Check the bottom of your boots: you will need good tread since the trail has several steep sections of "pea" gravel which rolls underfoot.
