We hiked this route for the first time on Jan 1st. TheIngredients include cross desert hiking with some biking trail, an extensive cactus garden, a couple of shallow canyon, abundant fossils, a hilltop fort and Winnie the Pooh and 6 foot tall barrel cactus.
Recommended: experienced off trail hiking, love of desert flora and fauna. Quiet hikers who want to see wildlife.
You’ll need two liters of water and layered clothes.
Estimate: Class 2-3 five miles, 4 hours, about 1,000 feet elevation change.
