Elevation: 3,166 ft
Distance: 4.8 miles round trip
Begin: At mile 13, Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive
A moderate hike (due to distance) to a series of prominent volcanic dike formations. The "chimneys" have always been an important landmark, and Indian rock art marks the base of these high pinnacles. The Chimneys are 2.4 miles away and easily seen from the trailhead.
The trail beyond the chimneys continues west another 4.6 miles and ends on the Old Maverick Road near Luna's jacal. This is an enjoyable 7-mile hike if you can arrange transportation on the opposite end. From the chimneys you can also head northwest 1.5 miles to the huge cottonwood tree that marks Red Ass Spring. Return the way you came.
