California Riding & Hiking Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This delightful, one-way (preferably downhill) route has a long and varied history. Originally a well-beaten Native American trail, it was used for many decades by cattlemen moving herds from the Mesa Grande area near Lake Henshaw to winter and spring grazing grounds at the mouths of Hellhole and Borrego Palm canyons. After World War II, the trail became a branch of the California Riding & Hiking Trail (CRHT). Today, while the statewide CRHT has largely fallen into disrepair, this particular desert segment continues to be frequently used (if not maintained much)."
