Located along the Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive, mile 11 (at Burro Mesa spur road), this sandy and flat trail provides users with some interesting geology sites. The trail is 1 miles in length, flat and heads up a short canyon to the pouroff.

Please Note: The dry desert air quickly uses up the body's water reserves. We recommend that you carry a minimum of one gallon of water per person per day in the summer, slightly less in the winter. For half-day hikes, carry at least 2 quarts per person.

Springs and tinajas (depressions in rock where water collects) are unreliable and may be unsafe to drink. Springs are rare in the desert and wildlife depend on them. Please carry enough water to supply your own needs

Due to the complex topography and vague trails, detailed 7.5 minute topographic maps and a compass are necessary for most hikes.

On a final note, the weather in Big Bend, hot or cold, injures and kills more hikers than any other factor. Come well prepared because weather changes can be dramatic and unexpected.

Directions: From Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive, Travel to the mile 11 marker (at Burro Mesa spur road)
