Easy trail for anyone to do. Get here early to snag the camp spot at the end if your looking for seclusion.

Not much to see here other than the usual desert environment and a few palm trees at the end of the trail. But the smooth sandy 2-track was fun to drive.

Waypoint two ended up being a good spot to have lunch and cruise around. So peaceful and beautiful out there, the end of the trail seemed like it would be a good camping spot.
