Nestled in the heart of the popular Table Mesa Recreation Area, this short and straightforward trail passes through a prototypical Sonoran Desert landscape with one delightful surprise. An unnamed spring along a small wash creates a lush garden in the dusty desert. The green leaves of white-barked sycamore trees shimmer in the breeze. Not native to this area, a massive palm tree stands as a lonely sentinel over the grassy campsites below. The surprising oasis literally begs you to picnic here or even pitch a tent and stay for the night under a starry sky. This short trail can easily be combined with nearby tracks to create an interesting loop. There is plenty to see in the Sonoran Desert, so take your time and explore the Table Mesa Recreation Area.
