There are two peaks for this hike and it is not a circle. It's one way and back. Just when you think you are done, you have to go up another mountain then turn around and do it all over again. Great fitness if your up for it

Wonderful place for a hike. Good parking. Nice descriptions of plants and schrubs along the way. I recommend going early... it's hot there ya know.

Do this one early in the morning if the weather is going to get hot. Fairly strenuous up and down hike but with beautiful views.

An easy, and easily adjustable hike. We went to the top, but given time constraints, did not continue on to the other end (this is an out an back trail, with the high point in the middle). Excellent views of the surrounding area. Plants are marked for those interested in desert flora. Even saw a curled snake (well, part of... More
