This is a beautiful place for a walk or hike. There are many trails that are of varying degrees of difficulty. It is located very close to the Ritz Carlton which is a great place to stop for drink after the hike.

Enjoyed this trail but it was a bit tough to find. The beginning was easy but it became more challenging as we climbed. Some rocks were covered with sand, making them somewhat slippery. Next time I’ll bring a hiking pole

The Wild Burro trail is the most popular trail in this park, but it's not my personal favorite. I prefer the higher Wild Mustang Trail. I hike up that trail and then descend down into the Wild Burro trail and hike back to the trailhead...More

Bring plenty of water and look for signs of ancient dwellers! The rocks and landscape are spectacular. Nice hike.

This is a fairly typical desert hike that can be connected to additional trails to add to the journey. Liked being able to go right from our room at the Ritz Carlton.
