Hike up the sandy wash of Torote Canyon, which for the most part makes a good and easy-to-follow trail. You will need to scramble up and over an occasional boulder-clogged segment of the trail, but in general the going is easy enough to enjoy the canyon’s remote surroundings. The Spanish word torote means “twisted,” referring to the gnarled growth pattern of the elephant trees, which are widespread in Mexico.
