A short and somewhat sandy trail. Not far to the Mouses Tank - easy for most ages. The tanks are OK and there are some petroglyohs along the way if you can spot them. Worth a few minutes but don;t miss the Fire Wave down...More

The trail to Mouse's Tank is stunning! It offers both natural rock formations and petroglyphs! This is a fairly level hike with most of it being loose sand. There was no water in Mouse's Tank when I visited but I did not care, the scenery...More

This is considered an easy trail to walk, with the hope of seeing water in the "tank" at the end of the walk. Sadly, no water for us. The walk is not long but it is exactly like walking on a sandy beach. This is...More

Tons of rock art to see here. The trail is mostly sand but easy. There is a parking lot/turn out in the park to use to access the trailhead. The rock formations here are crazy unique and pretty.

There is parking but because it is a hike back to the Mouse Tank, I would suggest having something to block the sand when the wind is blowing. It is very fine sand and a face scarf would be a good idea because the wind can... More
