"A short day hike to a natural water pocket in the northern Puerto Blanco Mountains, 0.8 mile one way. Note: At the time of printing (2013), this trail was closed. Please stop at the visitor center for current conditions. This trail makes a nice day hike from the Puerto Blanco Road to a natural catch basin that may contain water during the rainy season. This source of surface water is critical to desert wildlife, and hikers should tote their own water with them so that the tinaja does not become depleted. The trail begins as a narrow footpath, but soon merges with an old two-rut wagon trail."
