    Shauna McLaughlin reviewed Barker Dam Nature Trail

    7 months ago

    Great easy hike/walk to end the day in Joshua Tree National Park. The sun was going down when we got here and the rocks and pond looked really beautiful. Definitely doable for families, and is one of the more popular trails that we encountered so there will be plenty of people there but it didn’t feel overcrowded.

    This hike was a great challenge and let us see an incredible view from the summit as well as many scenic vistas along the path. It wasn’t a super long hike but boy were we huffing and puffing, it is quite steep at some points. well worth it thought and there are many areas at the summit that are perfect for eating some food and taking a good break before heading back down. Really enjoyed this hike!

    This was an awesome and challenging hike! Be aware that the initial path is very overgrown with some kind of tall grass and I would recommend wearing hiking pants. I had shorts on because it was very hot out and I was fine but my legs got a bit chewed up by all the overgrowth, while my sister had spandex leggings on and she was much better off (and much sweatier). We cut off about half a mile by taking a shortcut a little past the pond instead of doing the full loop. It was a great workout and some very pretty views and the pond was a nice reprieve after all the uphill. As other reviewers have said, take the left at the fork!
