  • Great place to go camping if you want to get away from everyone and everything. Primitive camping, beautiful sights. Hopefully they will clear out some of the mesquite, and help bring back the Pronghorn antelope. Otherwise there are lots of mule and white tail deer, coyotes, rabbits, even skunks to see. There are some foxes, bobcats and mountain lions also but those are less likely to see. Its one of the best places for bird watching.
  • Lots of wildlife to view. Rugged terrain very rocky. Good hunt!
  • Great place to visit. Roads are a little rough. Trash left by illegals.
  • Moderately easy walk with some benches for resting. Just under a mile.
  • It was a great place to hunt and camp. Feds took it over and ruined it.
