A very flat, featureless and exposed hike to the the tall and rocky ridge, visible in the distance. While the hike to The Chimneys is horribly boring, the landscape once you get there is interesting. Climbing some of the lower outcrops provides a good view over the desert landscape: to the south is Kit Mountain, and beyond that the Chisos Mountains. There's also petroglyphs at the base of the southern-most rock outctop.
