  • Great hike; more up and down then you would expect; have water with you, no shade; total of 7+ miles in and out up to smokey trail. Nice to see the mule ears from the other side.

  • Pretty wild environment shift at the springs, even if it’s tiny. The rest is a mild hike through the desert.
  • Great sunrise or night sky viewpoint
