This hike is everything great that's been written. Many patches of sand along the trail which make the going slower, true, but the scenery's worth. Bring lunch and have it under the dense shade of the willows. High season's hell to park off Park Boulevard so arrive early. Well worth it.

All the hiking here is great

This is a really great hike. It had some of the best open scenery I'd ever seen. The last part of the hike before the turn around was thru sand which became a bit of a workout. There was a basin with some water, non drinkable, but full of toads who were mating. ot was really awesome site

This is an ok hike in the beginning. The wonderland of rocks is very cool to see. The last leg of the hike of the hike is a slog though through sand. I would stop at the end of the wonderland when the ground gets soft and turn around!

Lots of cool rocks to climb. Take lots of water. Cool place.

It's an awesome place but not an awesome trail. It is mostly a wash. It can get confusing. I wouldn't go without a map. You can get to Bigfoot trail from here. Now that's a trail I would recommend doing.

Dogs are not allowed on trails inside the park (they can enter but must stay in the car

I thought this hike was amazing. You hike the Boy Scout trail through the Joshua tree forest to meet up with the Willow Hole trail. This trail leads you directly into the Wonderland of Rocks. Which is awesome. Once you hit the little water hole (Willow Hole), do some bouldering. This is where most turn around and head back, as I did. Good day hike, do this one!
