Alma Wash Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This long, fairly disused trek offers the gift of silence. The sandy wash gives way to boulders and enters a canyon where the temperature noticeably drops at points where the sun is blocked (wear layers). Long pants and sleeves defend against grabbing catclaw, spiny barrel cactus, and cholla. Careful foot navigation on piled, sometimes-unstable rocks, as well as boulder hopping that increases with mileage covered, make Alma Wash unsuitable for younger, less-experienced hikers. For hardy hikers who enjoy a long, quiet trek into desert solitude, this is the place to find such quiet paradise. Outstanding Features: Soft, sandy wash; boulders; cool canyons; and elephant trees."
