Route Description, Points of Interest, & History:
Pumpkin patch trail to the Pumpkin Patch and Long Lizard trail back. Then do some Sand and Sand dunes. This is a mild 3+ trail. We have about 30 miles drive to the start of the trail. Each of the trails is 3.5 to 4 miles long but will take an hour or more for each one. Plan to leave at 9a be back by 3 or 4p; bring lunch;

PUMPKIN PATCH
This unique landscape is the result of wind and water continuously eroding the surface soil and revealing these globular sandstone concretions. Such concretions are believed to be formed by the natural cementing of sand particles to a small object such as a piece of shell, a grain of sand, or even an insect. Please help preserve the Pumpkin Patch and the nearby ridges where new pumpkin-size desert “pearls” are emerging.
