Description:
Very scenic desert run/walk/hike from the park campground to the ruins of Holly, Horseshoe and Hackberry. <br> <br> The distance is pretty accurate as I took my GPS with me. It is closer to 3.4 miles to the Holly Ruins, not 4.0 as the signs say. <br> <br> The beginning off the trail is a little tricky to follow as you scramble over rocks, through a narrow (less than 2&#039; wide)crack in the rocks, then follow the path along dried creek beds. <br> <br> The Holly Ruins are incredable. The Horseshoe Ruins and Hackberry Ruins are nice but not as impressive. <br> <br> Be sure to stay on the trail. Not that I did but somebody outta follow the rules. <br> <br>
