The Drive...
HWY 85 to S Woods Rd (East) Hard Left IMMEDIATELY after cattle guard. Drive along fenceline. Follow BLM Margies Cove Trail signs. High clearance vehicle.

The Trail...
Not so wishy washy. Large cairns mark the route. Wash walking doesn’t get started until a ways in. It’s not terribly deep nor difficult. Exposed. Flat.

The Flora...
“Standard” Sonoran stuff. Abundant wildflowers even now in January due to good rains. Mallows, poppies. Phacelia, fiddleneck, etc. Crested saguaro.

The Fauna...
Cool and windy so mostly saw track and scat. Deer, javelina, bobcat. Great jackrabbit area. Saw one black-tailed jackrabbit. Rock lifts found side-blotched lizard, centipedes, scorpion.

The Extra
Head up Brittlebush Trail for a couple miles. Beautiful desert views. Nice geology.

The End of trail...
Saddle Mountain Brewery, Goodyear.
