This is a hidden spot that takes you behind the dam wall and to some beautiful scenery and rock formations. The area is just to the est of the bridge about 100 feet for a turn off at the right. Park there, and hike in to the hanging gardens. It is called that because there are green foliage on a lush oasis that is thriving in the desert mesa. They gardens are fed by a little spring by some rock ledge overhang. The hike is about 1 1/2 miles, and some areas may be hard to find the direction, but look for the cairns on the horizons. After about 1/2 mile on the trail take a right up the rock face and climb to the butte. From there, look hard for the cairns to the right that direct to the gardens. You walk over some sand trail for half the distance, and then climb the slide rock face to the top. the gardens continue for quite some way. You could hike further if desired.
