Fun hike. Moderate w a bit of incline. Tons of beautiful wildflowers out!

Pretty steep climb to start but worth it! The path is very well groomed and marked - OUTSTANDING views. The desert is in bloom, bursting with the smells and beauty of various yellow, white, purple & green. Even the odd Barrel Cactus has pretty flowers extended. HIGHLY recommended but take lots of water - shade is hard to find in the AM past noon.

Great weather when we went and we went through so many different sections of different flowers. It was even fun to off-road it and not have to worry about getting too lost. Would definitely do it again!

We started hiking at 6:30am and reached the Palm Oasis at a perfect time in great soft morning light. It was so quiet and we enjoyed listening to the chirping of the birds.

Great hike. Awesome views. We were the only ones on a Saturday morning. My 8yr old and 11yr old had no problem with this hike and we enjoyed it very much.

We followed signs to Pushwalla Palms up along the mountain ridge. Not recommended for anybody scared of heights. Once we got down in the Pushwalla Palms Oasis we followed the river down towards Washington St. We ended up a little lost trying to get back up to the trails. My husband didn't really want to go uphill again but I think that's where we went wrong. If you follow my path I think we should have stayed on the outside of the hills and followed it around until we saw the Hidden Palms Oasis. Glad it was an overcast day since we didn't bring water and it ended up being longer then I thought. Lots of breathtaking scenery.

great hike here today. We got a late start -almost 2:45pm but were back at the car by 5:15. Starts to get cold with out the sun and the ridge was blocking it on the backside of the loop.

Not to be missed, even by non-hikers. There is a generous parking lot and a cement walkway that allows access to several viewpoints. I have been there when the air quality was so bad that the view into the valley was greatly restricted. But after the rain and winds that hit the park this week, the view was the clearest we've ever seen.

If you do nothing else, check out the San Andreas fault, which is easily seen in the valley from the viewing platforms on a clear day.
