Thimble trail is a cut-a-cross from Short Wash to Highway S22. Although the trail isn't popular, this is a great way to exit from Font's Point to enjoy views of the area and have a secluded and relaxing drive. Taking the trail from south to north, you will experience stunning views of the Santa Rosa Mountains across the highway as you work through what seems like never-ending desert fauna. The trail is an easy dirt path that any 2WD high-ground clearance vehicle can complete.

Even though you could disperse camp off this trail, most people camp off short-wash as that area provides a wind break. The best camping on this trail is near the southern end, where the fauna is more spread out, reducing your risk of getting injured by sharp plants.
