  • The trails were nice the scenery was great. It's a desert trail so it was very hot. It was obviously very popular trail because there was no parking and had to park in the overflow parking a mile away.The visitor center could use some some help in the beverage department and perhaps even some food would be great. Only vending machines.The Gift shop was very poorly stocked not much to choose from.
  • Definitely great hikes. I did the seven falls trail or whatever. It was surprising that there is water in the middle of this desert. It’s like different world if you go all the way up. I can see this place is thriving in early spring with wildlife. Definitely will come back and visit
