“A worthwhile detour exploring some of the area's unique geology.”— Eric Ashley
From the tanks, keep along the main path as it begins to circle to the west. The route gets indistinct here, but hikers are headed for the closest point of a nearby long sandstone ramp. After scrambling to the top, the red "hamburger" formations can be seen perched above the surrounding white sandstone.
Once you've enjoyed the Hamburger Rocks and the tanks, return the way you came, and continue on to either the Lower Muley Twist Canyon Trail or the Halls Creek Drainage.
