An easy trail and great for kids, yet with a "wild' feel. As soon as you leave the sound of passing traffic on Montezuma Rd behind, you feel almost as remote as a backpack. The field was in full bloom with small purple flowers in the morning, but they were folded up when we returned in the afternoon. Plenty of sign of wildlife use of the trails, particularly coyote, but also bighorn sheep. A few hundred meters down canyon we found the perfect spot to just hang for awhile and I'm tempted to come back with a tent. A sandy "porch" in the wash with a spectacular view of the valley floor below all the way out to the Salton Sea. As my 4-year old said, "little tiny trees like dots, little tiny roads, little tiny farms, little tiny...", well, you get the idea. Big boulders, junipers, and cool caves envelop the site, making it a great spot to "nest."
