Hole-in-the-Wall Professional Review and Guide
"This short but unforgettable hike leads through a rugged slot canyon and onto yucca-studded flats surrounded by volcanic cliffs and buttes. This short hike may be the most exciting and spectacular in all Mojave National Preserve. The Rings Trail passes through a very narrow slot in a cliff of volcanic rock, descends to the ominously named gorge of Banshee Canyon, then opens up into lower Wild Horse Canyon, a beautiful valley embraced by volcanic cliffs and buttes. Although the Rings Trail is potentially dangerous, it’s not as difficult as it may first appear. Anyone with even a little scrambling experience will enjoy the exciting descent into Banshee Canyon. The route is, however, not recommended for small children."
