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. As you reach the top of the mountain, you can get excellent views of the campgrounds and the parks Interpretative Center.

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!
