This hike has it all.
Easy and very scenic.

At Oro grande, hike down the wash.
At point "X1" hike out the wash to the left up a burro trail.
At point "X2" keep left and hike up to the saddle.
On top of the saddle, take the burro trail to the right, slowly descending.

At the crack, take a closer look.
Go towards the lower saddle, furthest away from the crack.
Hike up to the saddle (no burro trail) and surprisingly it's easy to come down, on the other side.
Take another burro trail leading to the wash below.
Hike the narrow wash downhill.

Just before the cove we meet the mockingbird wash.
Hike a burro trail on the right side (just before the dense bush), keep on going to the lake and keep on the right side.
Hike the saddle to the right. Just before a ridge a burro trail leads to the saddle.
Follow the lake and try to keep low (closer to the lake).
Later on you need to go a bit higher up to cross the washes.
Follow the burro trail over a saddle towards the red rocks below.
Keep on the left of the small wash on the burro trail.

Below on the other side of the wash you can see a rather steep jeep trail. Follow it uphill and turn left over the ridge and turn right into the wash, towards the red/brown rocks.

Follow this narrow canyon/wash towards the car.
When you are on the bank of the grand wash, keep on it towards the car.
Closer to the end the trail heads to the left (north/west) and into a wash.
Follow the narrow canyon to the right, into the mockingbird wash back to the car.

Hiking time: 3 Hours.
