Crowds

An easy Needles hike which will take you two hours at most, with views over Lower Little Spring and Big Spring Canyons. There’s little elevation gain so it’s ideal for families with young children. Look out for bighorn sheep. The trail is exposed so it's best to avoid in the middle of the day in summer. The trail head is on the Big Spring Canyon Overlook Road.
