The nearby flood plain leads to two canyons to the north and east that provide excellent opportunities for day hikes. The area is frequented by wild burros. Their tracks are everywhere. To the west are rock formations with canyons suitable for day hikes. The picnic table and fire ring are set up against a high bluff, among boulders. Sunrises and sunsets should be dramatic.
