This area is riddled with social trails, sometimes more prominent than the official trails. Sometimes the official trails are faint and hard to follow. Unless you just want to wander around a bit, make sure you have a way to figure out where you are (like the Trailforks app). Lots of cholla on the trail, too. Tubeless is a real bonus here. It is pretty though.
