  • Nice loop with views and cacti

    A path with steps (making hiking a lot more troublesome) uphill. After the first stretch the annoying steps are gone and a more normal hiking trail leads through the mountains. There are plenty of photo and viewing opportunities.
    At the crossing with Sendero Esperanza, turn left downhill.
    At the the next crossing take Dobe Wash Trail to the left.
    After this point, the trail is more sandy, as we stay in a wash most of the hike.
    After reaching the dirt road, turn left and stay on the dirt road.
    Take a right turn on the well marked Bajada Wash Trail, a more rocky wash, leading downhill.
    At a crossing, ignore the trails leading left and right.
    As the trail nears the dirt road on the left (less than 100 yards), cross over to the road.
    Take the dirt road (the road you came on) left to the parking.

    In May 2009 the cacti where blooming.
    There is no shade on the hike.
