Trip difficulty: Moderate. 1.5 miles on dirt paths and loose wash sand. Trip duration no more than 2.5
hours. No water, no bathroom, limited shade, and one bench.
This trip is in the wash 4 miles north of Catalina State Park. It contains several different habitats and is
known for some rarities.

None of it is of danger, just annoying.

light on Wilds Rd. Go 1.1 miles and take a right on N. Lago del Oro Pkwy. Go right for .4 miles to Rollins
