 Hard to find narrow unmarked trail coming from the Peralta Road side. Cacti and brush encroaching the trail that can easily catch your hands. Lots of loose rocks keep your speed down and horses knock cholla into the trail so keep a look out. Great views. Gets hot in this section of the desert so bring ample fluids. Intersecting trails are unnamed and extremely confusing even using Trailforks.
