    To hike
    From Phoenix, take I-10 West and exit onto State Highway 85. Proceed on State Highway 85 past the Buckeye Hills Recreation Area and the State Prison to MP 134 at Woods Road. Turn Left (East) on Woods Road which will turn into a Dirt Road right away. After Crossing the Cattle Guard, take an immediate Left, even though it appears that there is no Road there. It's there, and it basically does a U-Turn and follows the other side of the Fenceline back to the West, before turning North. At 3.4 Miles from the Cattle Guard, you will start to cross a Large Wash. The Sand is hard packed here and you can park in the Wash. If you are not comfortable with that, proceed another 0.8 Miles to the Turnoff for the Margies Cove Trail TH and Park there. The Road has some Sandy Spots, but the Sand is not Deep. A Low Clearance Car may have some Trouble in a few Washed out areas, especially at the Wash Crossings, but an SUV or Truck is fine.
