    I loved this hike. Hadn't been out in awhile, and some of the views literally almost brought tears to my eyes. There are two legs to this hike. The trail actually runs up along the top of the ridge to end at a sign overlooking the wash and the mines. If you keep your eyes open, on the way along the trail to the right you will see the remains of an old house. Follow the trail in front of the house and down into the canyon. The trail will take you into the wash, then up along the side of the wash right up to the mine entrances, which are fenced off. There is a lot of downhill on this second portion, but it is worth it.

    Fun, easy and historic walk out through the desert. If you keep your eyes open, you will see the ruins of an old home, a marker for a grave, and a lot of abandoned equipment from the mine. The Wall Street Mill was an old gold mill, and while the mill itself is still there, it is roped off. The trailhead is near the trailhead for Barker Dam, so you can do both hikes on the same day. Definitely doable. The Mill hike is much less travelled, and I saw only one other person once I hit the trail.

    Short, sweet, and beautiful. On my worse days, I can make this hike, and the rewards are significant. Well travelled, so you will meet other hikers. Worth it.

    This is a go to hike for us. It is short and very pretty. There are lots of other trails close by and lots of easy boulder climbing. The other end of the campground will get you to rattlesnake canyon, which is also fun. We usually do both, and have lunch at either rattlesnake canyon, or an empty campsite.

    Absolutely beautiful hike. Not for anyone with difficulty walking, as there are stairs and so forth cut into the rock and might be difficult, but it is one of the most beautiful hikes on the park. A lot of people use it, so no privacy. Lots of rocks and lots of climbers, so you are likely to get a show.

    Roberta Adams reviewed Barker Dam Nature Trail Loop

    almost 3 years ago

    Super easy hike and well marked trail. Also well travelled, so you will meet lots of other hikers along the way. There is a lake out there, at about halfway, but due to drought, there is not a lot of water. It is still quite beautiful though, and a nice place to stop and rest. As said in other reviews, as you continue around the trail you will come to some petroglyphs. Of historical interest, you will also come across some stone troughs and other vestiges of the ranching of days gone by.

    This is a fun trail, very easy and well maintained. The most fun comes when you go off trail just a hair and climb some of the wild rock formations all around these parts. My grandson and I spend hours at a time at the Jumbo Rocks/Skull Rock area and never cease to have a blast. There are rock formations for any climbing ability, and by just going off trail just a little, you can really feel like you are lost out there. One of my favorite places to go.

    This is a very easy hike through the desert with beautiful scenery along the way. I made the hike with my four year old grandson, who had no trouble. It begins and ends at the Jumbo Rock area, which gave him opportunity to do rock climbing.

    It is difficult to distinguish where the overlook may have actually been, and as neither my grandson nor I have the physical ability to do any real rock climbing, we did not go up to the top of any of the larger rock formations. We did climb some of the smaller ones, and found a nice little niche to have our lunch.

    We returned to the campgrounds cross country, rather than following the trail. It is always a nice surprise to come across some of the rock art formations that other hikers have left in the desert. The only time we saw other hikers aside from beginning and end, was at a good distance. There is no shade, so definitely a spring/fall hike out here.
