If you want a short hike that gives the feeling of vast isolation written about in Edward Abbey books, this trail is for you. This is a good trail for seeing lizards and insects as well. It is a hot trail in summer; if you hike then, be sure to start early in the day and carry plenty of water.

A nice little trail, but the guide is misleading in an important way. While the hike is fairly easy, conditions change substantially at the descent to the spring. It is very steep with loose rock and is not switchbacked. Proper footgear anda walking stick are needed if you don't want to slide halfway down to the spring on your @$!*% - like I did! Also, the out and back is 2.43 miles as measured by my Garmin Colorado 400t.
