“A hike that has history with it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

There are several "hikes" to take
Some harder with elevations...and there is also an easier one for us older seniors..
This is BLM land,and it is "fee" charge area but it is only $3 a car.
You can enjoy with Wildlife viewing, hiking, picnicking.

“Easy hiking, moderate trails, open views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

The visitors center is informative. Hike to the remains of the old hotel resort. Paved road becomes gravel for a few miles, so be prepared to get your car dusty. Well marked trails are easy to follow.

“History hidden away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

This was an old health resort during the turn of the last century. Some of the old building structures remain. It has a very walkable trail suitable for most ages which wanders through some very scenic desert areas. It is especially pretty when the cactus are in bloom.
