This time of year is perfect for getting out in the desert. This is an awesome canyon hike! A beautiful creek encased with towering canyon walls, solitude and abundance of wildlife. It's close to the valley and a wonderful trail for a day hike. Be prepared for wet feet! There are many creek crossings but not above mid thigh. There are pools to take dip in for members of the “polar bear” club.
An extra pair of shoes/socks left in the vehicle is recommended for after the hike. We are planning a barbeque after the hike, so bring a dish to share and whatever you would like to grill. A grill will be provided.
