"This mostly flat trail crosses the San Andreas Fault and loops around a sandy wash before leading to one of the largest groves of desert fan palms in California and a picture-perfect pond that is home to the endangered desert pupfish. The trail can be shortened to 2 miles round-trip by skipping the Moon Country segment and following the McCallum Trail straight to the palm grove." Read more
