Fish Creek Wash Professional Reviews and Guides
"If you do only one drive in the park, this should be the one. It has it all: an outstanding scenic and geologic experience, wind caves, and Sandstone Canyon, a slot canyon with walls 200 feet high. On the way to Fish Creek Wash is the Elephant Trees Area, where an easy 1.5-mile self-guided loop foot trail introduces visitors to the area’s diverse vegetation. Elephant Trees (Bursera microphylla) are small trees or shrubs noted for thick trunks in which water is stored. They bloom in early summer with a small creamy-white flower."
