Palm Springs Boondock
Great location for hikes in the area! Easy to find and access the site. As described, the site was very windy, but it wasn't an issue with earplugs.

Palm Springs Boondock
Was perfectly described with no exaggeration. Very honest assessment and the place worked out perfectly for me! I stayed there because I needed to do so cheaply and it was during the holidays when things are at the most expensive. I had no problems and it was pretty at night. Coyotes howling at night. I liked that.
