Very easy “walk in the park” type of trail that was absolutely breath taking! A must see while in Joshua Tree!

You hike to a campground - better trails in the park for sure

A nice out-and-back hike with a little bit of climb. We do this hike once or twice a month. It's right off highway 62, so it's easy to get to the trailhead compared to the trails in JTNP proper. Seeing the tops of the oasis palms in the distance is always a treat after you round the bend. We were once greeted by a view of a family of bighorns feasting on California Barrel Cactus.

Easy hike to get started.

Clear signs on where the trail is going, but poor communication about the nature of the trail - it's a 1.7 mile loop that includes a 0.5 mile section on the road to a campground. Very confusing. If you turn back at road as we did, then it's just a there and back for a total of 1 mile from Skull Rock. Nice informational signs about vegetation along the way, and plenty of cool rock formations along the way, but also very close to road.

Crowded hike with expansive views. Really nicely constructed steps! Easy to navigate and a cool variety of terrain and sights.

Rewarding and easy one mile hike with lots of different plants. Good signage, though the busy nature of it means that people are all over the place.

Many rocks to climb on and beautiful views from the top of them!

This hike is full of steps 1.5 miles up! Once you get to the top there’s an elevation sign perfect for a photo opp. It gives you a good workout, but is not too strenuous. Highly recommended!

Love this trail! Short but a tough hike and run.

Keep going in one direction although there are no markers on your way. Easy hike with no elevation gain but nice rock formations and trees on your way. History of Wall Street Mill makes it an interesting place

An easy going trail in the rocks

I did it yesterday.. A bit harder on the way up, I was a bit worry for my knees on the return, but incredibly easy since I took my time. Was easier to go down than up.. Using walking poles helped me a lot..

We hiked to the mine and returned. It’s a rocky not well marked trail but a fun hike.

Amazing expansive valley hidden behind the rocks. Knowing that it was created by destroying the rocks and making the passage makes it accessible for trail hikers and also explains how it was hidden for so long. Again. Good opportunity for rock climbers on the way

Very easy hike and nice rock formation. Tip: take picture from left bottom side of rock for best perspective

I always followed in “Keep calm and believe in alltrails”. But what happened here. Hiking a 1200 ft in 1.2 miles is not easy. Make it moderate atleast if not siding towards hard. But 5 stars througout. Views begin as soon as 0.2-0.3 miles in and once you reach the top, you have 360 degree views all around. I saw sunset at one side and turned around to see full moon coming up. Awesome.

Busy parking lot. Nice hike. Good views.

best one mile hike in the world

Great to do something in Yucca Valley. Nice change from our usual lower desert hikes. Nice loop along a ridge line. Joshua trees everywhere! Trail mellow and easy to follow. But, fairly sandy.

Excellent way to start the day! Love the terrain.

The summit makes you work for it, but the view is worth the effort. Recommend trekking poles for those of you who suffer from weak knees or lungs, like me.

Awesome hike! Moderately difficult on the way up, easy strolling on the way down. Bring a windbreaker if you can!

Easy. Easy. Easy.

Done it 3 times. Once in 105 degree weather
It’s a good trail. Not simple, not too hard.

This is a very enjoyable trail and easy to trek. But there is not enough directions on where it starts and ends. You just have to guess at what you’re doing.

Fantastic ✨

Awesome experience second time around.
