Brink your Camelbak and hiking sticks for this one. This is a challenging hike, but the views from the top of the mountain are worth it! A must for visitors to Joshua Tree.

Beautiful view.

This is my favorite trail in Joshua Tree so far. It isn't overly strenuous and the views are awesome. When I think back to everything I did there, I always remember this hike first. There are plenty of cool places to wander off the main trail to make yourself a hidden camp for the night among the various rock outcroppings. Be sure to bring a headlamp and plenty of battery power for your camera so you can wander about at sunset taking pictures and enjoying the night sky. This was a wonderful hike, I would gladly do it again.

Beautiful hike. Parallels road at the end. Mostly just a walk but go in between boulders which you can climb pretty high when you get there. Easy to find. Nice desolate trail w no one on it on Memorial Day weekend. Fabulous. There is no elevation climb regardless of what I've seen written. Maybe a few hundred feet but if so its gradual so you don't notice. Beginning can be a bit tough as its like walkin on a beach (uneven sand) so the trail is a harder walk but nothing too difficult. More annoying than anything but it's brief. How can you be annoyed when you have this landscape around you?! Easily marked. Def a do over!

Not a super pretty hike, but not bad either. Great trail for some exercise.

Shorter in mileage but serious incline. Was a bunch of fun and recommend it for anyone new to JTNP.

Real shame it's so crowded now. Used to live on Canyon Rd, hiked up there all the time when very few knew about it. Not too rigorous a hike. Our Irish Setter thoroughly enjoyed it. But, that was all back in 1975 too!

Loved this hike. Getting up over the mountain was a little difficult. Make sure to bring water. The end at the palm trees was a great reward. The trees were agreat resting spot. There is no cover along the route so wear a hat. The hike was less than 3 miles out and back.

Great hike
