Hike the Petroglyph Canyon Trail to the Mouse's Tank

    Rate this Adventure 0.8 miles 25 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

    Added by Jean-Claude Linossi

    Easy and fairly short trail with very good views of rock formations and a natural water tank at the end of the trail.

    Start the hike from the parking area for the Petroglyph Canyon Trail. The trail is not difficult to hike, but has deep sand in some places. There are very good views of the rock formations and of the desert vegetation and there are a couple of places where petroglyphs can be seen. The view at the tank is quite beautiful!
