This is an easy one half-mile loop with interpretive signs along the way that takes you through the shrub habitat Chihuahuan Desert. There are a large variety of wonderful prickly pear cacti such as brown, spined, purple tinged, and Engleman along with many other cacti such as hedgehogs, rainbow.
This was a fun little hike, very easy, all flat, and very educational! The trail wanders through your typical flat desert of the plain, and has little signs along it explaining how plants adapt to the desert.
