The trailhead can be found just south of the old windmill on the far side of the park. The trail crosses over a large wash before quickly ascending to the top of the western most mountain range.

Beautiful Hike

The old river bed and the foliage really make this hike a good one if you're looking to get a lot of vitamin D!
