This is a very pleasant trip as the trail softly winds its way into a picturesque and quiet canyon. The sandy nature of the trail allows for many fun choices without doing damage to the environment. A great place to take the kids, have a picnic, and play in the sand. Once you enter the canyon, most of the road is sandy wash bottom and fairly easy; however, conditions can change due to the fluid nature of the trail. Avoid this trip during periods of heavy rain and be aware of the possibility of flash floods. There is one steep sandy descent into the canyon that has the potential to wash out. It is difficult to drive up so plan to drive the trail in the direction described here. Route-finding may be a little confusing because there are often several choices available while in the wash. Fortunately, most choices lead to the same place. Mileage will vary based on the specific path you choose.
