Found this little trail when we walked around the campsite on our first afternoon after arriving. Nice sunny day, nice little walk, saw a Heron, Roadrunner and a Javelina. View of the river.

Another wonder trail we hiked. It was amazing despite the desert feel all the insects, wildlife & wild flowers in bloom there. It’s very rocky but the view from the top is excellent. The landscape of rocks & canyon was very interesting

Loved seeing the Mexican beaver and yellow headed blackbirds on this hike. Also interesting millipedes all over the place. Loved being out on the bit of peninsula to see Mexico and the river on all sides. Highly recommend this short and easy walk.

This trail is in the campground 18. You can park your car and walk around. The trail is first in some swampy land you are walking on bridges before you head into the warm sun on a hill. It was just too hot to walk...More

People are correct, great place to watch the sunset and I wish we had. Wonderful views of the river. Not a hard hike at all. We hiked to the river and up the hill. We had lunch in the campground area next to it. All...More
