Tenaja Truck Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Hard-riding Spanish vaqueros called the deep holes in the creekbed, tenajas. The holes held water year-around and provided crucial summer water sources for both cows and cowboys. Today the tenajas (Spanish for “tanks”) offer habitat for many plants and animals, some uniquely adapted to life with these basins-in-the-bedrock. Granite Loop Trail offers a good look at the tenajas as well as something of a microcosm of the reserve. For many visitors, hikers or not, the pathway is the primary— and often only—experience of the plateau."
