A variety of interesting historical, botanical, and geological features can be seen along this somewhat improvisational route. Even if you don’t want to attempt this entire loop, you’ll find much to fascinate you on an abbreviated hike. On foot, backtrack about 200 yards, cross the tracks (west of here the tracks are posted against trespassing—don’t walk along them or loiter around them), and head south-southwest across a broad alluvial plain dotted with cacti and small shrubs. Several rocky hills consisting of desert-varnished granitic boulders punctuate the surface of the plain.
