As with other desert hikes, take water along on this one. Even on cool winter days, full exposure can dehydrate both you and especially your dog in record time. In spring and fall, try to get on the trail early in the morning. You will stay cooler and see more wildlife. Begin this hiker-only route on the wide path leading from the trailhead parking lot. The path narrows and begins a gentle ascent westward. A trail-conditioned dog will have no problem with the rocky path, which is steep and loose in places as you approach the flat-topped summit.
