Love this desert park. There are about 10 shaded picnic sites near the welcome center, a short walking path, and a path that takes you to the top. The path to the top is primarily flat until you get to the base of the butte, then it is all uphill which I found to be mildly strenuous for a man in his 40's. It's not a long hike, it is just unrelenting uphill. There is a campground here as well, although I have never been to it. There are horse trails, but this is a small park so dont know if it is worth hauling a horse out here or not. This is a place to see amazing sunrises and sunsets!!!!
The park has a great view of the desert and many trails that wind though a grove of Joshua trees. It's got that 'off the beaten path' kind of vibe too. - There is also a small museum w/ a super friendly ranger at the park and entrance. - There's wheelchair accessible parking lot and bathrooms along with access to free water. - Overnight camping is offered for a $20 fee
