The starting point for this short but somewhat steep and rocky path is directly opposite the entrance to Tamarisk Grove Campground. On the first part of the trail, you’ll find interpretive signs for a half dozen or so common desert plants, but the real story here concerns the ubiquitous teddybear cholla (also called Bigelow cholla and jumping cholla) cactus, which grows to an exceptional size (up to 6 feet high) and density here.
