Absolutely beautiful! Easy hike suitable for everyone, lovely views and if you time it for sunset you can really see the light change. We saw a giant moth the size of a small bird and a lot of pupfish. Unique palnts and adaptations to salty environment.

Super easy hike, just about anyone can do it. The real prize are the Salt Creek Pup Fish. It isn't just anywhere that you can see a species that lives no where else and in such hostile conditions. The salt level in the creek can reach up to 8 times that of the Ocean the creek is so shallow that the fish make ripples on the surface as they swim. It is amazing watching the fish swim.
