This was a nice, easy 1.9 mile hike. It is not 1 mile as indicated by the trailhead sign. The road in is high clearance when dry. Sign at the trailhead said to watch out for threatened Phacelia serrata (Cinders phacelia) and Penstemon clutei (Sunset Crater penstemon). I didn’t find either. I found a lot of scarlett gilia, which superficially looks like the penstemon. Not a lot of birds. Spotted several Pinyon Jays near the trailhead. As I finished up, I noticed at least two people on the summit that could be seen from the trailhead. They must have traveled off trail from some other direction, as there was no sign of another car at the trailhead.
