Miles Hiked: 7.00 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A

Comments: Good Stuff. Only people I saw was one family of 5 coming off the trail as I was coming on. The Park HeadQuarters will hand you a map that marks off three short trails in Green, Yellow, and Blue. No trail names just the colors! Anway you can hit all three trails by changing paths at the connectors. Probably about 7 miles total. No real elevation change and it definitely didn't feel like deep wilderness solitude since you can see houses and roads on all of the vistas. Nonetheless a nice quick 2 hr in and out hike.Scenery: Bright colors on the rocks, 3 deer, and there was one interesting plateau that was swarming with prickly pear.
