Except for a few areas, this is hikeable for kids who can walk 3 miles.
I don't know about official closures, but I would not hike this in the summer.
This trail is about 2.5 miles and easy. There are 2 cutoffs–the first is at Post 6 (Mile .6), where you can cut over to the return trail if you want a shorter hike, There is another cutoff further up at about mile 1. The trail is singletrack, has a few short, steep climbs/steps. Other than those it is a nice trail.
The scenery is desert surroundings. Mostly, if not all flora, is Creosote bush. The viewpoint is at the top, but was closed to protect the Bighorn Sheep habitat. It took me just over an hour of moving time to get there.
I saw no birds or wildlife and I looked for wildlife on the hills, a few lizards scooted across the path now and then. It was in the mid 80's when I returned to the parking area--so plan accordingly. There is no water or toilets on the trail, but the visitors center has both, along with info on the trail itself.
Flora & Fauna
Lots of Creosote bushes. Later in the spring, after some rains, there maybe wildflowers.
