Hike the Cactus Rocks Trail Reviews

Not so much challenging. Does have beautiful views. This trail I could have just carried a sling for my drink. Does have places to sit if you get tried. Parked at warbler visits parking, took the right side fork, ascended a little but descended back. This is a loop with other trails connecting. Take a map.
