This short but diverse Jeep trail starts in an urban setting before leading into Red Rock Secret Mountain Wilderness. Though often busy, it is a fun drive with some cool spots to stop and explore further on foot. As soon as you’ve entered, the trail dips to cross a wash then climbs out to the Devils Kitchen sinkhole (which is just off the trail to the right). Then about 1/4 mile further are the “Seven Sacred Pools.” At the end of the Jeep road you can continue on foot for a hike with a couple of options: The right branch leads up rather steeply for 1/4 mile to an arch with great views. The left branch is the main trail, where views open up as the trail becomes increasingly steep and rocky along the climb to the pass.
