  • Very good for cycling I saw several people riding mountain bikes. Also saw my first rattlesnake for the season so be careful and mindful. A green Mohave was wanting to attack my Jeep. The sights there were beautiful I drove a little way down a wash and got out and plopped down on the sandy river bed and played in the sand hoping to find an interesting rock or gem. Didn’t find much but it was fun.

  • We used the entrance at the exit for Sunset Point Rest Stop, parked and walked along a beautiful trail (great for runners) that opened up to a miniature Grand Canyon. There are some power lines a long the trail, but you kinda forget they're there. We imagined what it was like to walk along that land before civilization came about. Super gorgeous. Zero shade so I don't recommend it I'm summer time unless you're in an ATV. THAT would be fun.
