"Sound of Silence is not intended to be a marked hiking trail. It is referred to as a route and is intended to challenge you to find your way around this loop (clockwise). It is designed as a lesson in minimum-impact desert hiking so that you might feel more comfortable hiking farther at another time. Arrows are placed at strategic locations, helping to guide you to each of the twenty-six numbered markers. If you pay close attention, you won’t get lost! As you begin the hike, you are 1 mile above sea level."

This isn't very long and has some technical areas but overall I really liked this trail. The surroundings are very varied and interesting. Do bring water, though, this is the desert!
