Wonderland Wash Professional Review and Guide
"Plentiful oak and prickly pear, as well as the remnants of a dam in the wash, are other attractions of this hike—but the primary focus is on the huge rock formations stretching in all directions in an enchanted world of whimsically eroded granite mounds. Well into the wash (1 mile from the trailhead) are the formations known to rock climbers who enjoy scaling their massive surfaces as the Astro Domes. You can usually hear climbers’ voices echoing from various points among the boulders, and their silhouettes may startle you when they appear hundreds of feet above, atop these obelisks. The return trip down the wash to the trailhead is equally interesting, providing views of the rock formations from a different perspective. Highlights: Spectacular rock formations of all shapes and sizes, in every direction."
