It was BLISTERING HOT when I visited this trail the other day, and I actually am not sure how much ground I covered (mileage-wise,) but I was only out there for about an hour. I had forgotten my hat, so the heat was hard to ignore. (The high was only 100. "Only." haha!)
I saw a few people, and no dogs. Also, I didn't see one bit of garbage, as some people have mentioned. But I did see one heck of a lot of cacti. :-)
The creek was very low. There were small pools in spots, packed with small fish with nowhere to go. It's been raining lightly for the past two days, so I'm hoping those poor fish are getting some relief.
In short, it just wasn't an enjoyable hike for me. (If you want to call it a "hike.") When it's cooler, I'll give this trail another shot.
