This hike starts in a good wildlife viewing area and traverses a section of the Arizona Trail across Anderson Mesa to a scenic viewpoint overlooking Walnut Canyon. You will start near the shore of Marshall Lake, which is usually more of a marsh than a lake. Because of the excellent cover, it is a good place to view waterfowl and other wildlife; the best times are before sunrise and after sunset. The trail, which is new, starts from the small sign at the parking area and heads west through the open pineoak-juniper forest on Anderson Mesa.
