I really wanted to do Lost Palm Oasis, but due to mine tailings being churned up, the trails that start from the Cottonwood area are closed in the South-end of the park.


0:35 ascent. 0:40 descent. Have to watch for ankle-twisting steps on the descent. Pretty hard to get lost on this trail and the hiker density was low enough to jog portions of this.

About 1000ft elevation gain over 1.5 miles.
